In mid-December a school resource officer with the Bridgeport (CT) Police Department performed a spectacular act of heroism by preventing a driverless SUV from crashing into students that had just been let out of school.

The agency posted video of the incident to its Facebook page with the caption, "On December 16th at approximately 1430hrs, Bridgeport School Resource Officer Carlos Carmo Jr. performed a heroic act by stopping an SUV that was rolling downhill on Boston Avenue with two individuals, one in the passenger seat and one on the back seat, but no driver."
