Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Shae Shaw will be recognized in a ceremony at 10 a.m. Thursday for his actions in a fatal traffic crash on Interstate 30 last Thursday evening. Shaw, who has been with the sheriff’s department only about six months, had responded to assist an out-of-state motorist whose car had broken down in the passing lane of Interstate 30 near the 131 mile marker about 7:20 p.m. Chief Sheriff’s Investigator Lewis Tatum credited Shaw, who was out of the vehicle with the occupants of the disabled vehicle, with saving the lives of the motorist and his passenger. “Deputy Shaw pulled up behind the broken down vehicle. He had his emergency lights on and was pushing traffic over into the right-hand lane,” Tatum said. “A vehicle driven by a Sulphur Springs man, I guess from what it looks like in the video, came along and rear-ended the patrol unit — he never saw him.” In the video, Shaw can be seen with the two people from the stranded car standing at the rear of the patrol truck. Shaw sees the other vehicle coming and begins pushing them out of harm’s way. As Shaw shouts to watch out and gives a final push to the people, the video shows the car crash violently into Shaw’s patrol vehicle. The driver of the car, Robert H. Thompson of Sulphur Springs, was critically injured and was flown to a Tyler hospital, where he later died of the injuries. While extending sympathies from the sheriff’s department to the Thompson family, Tatum said Shaw’s heroic actions prevented other injuries and potential deaths in the crash.
