A Life Irrevocably Changed

“I was responding ‘lights and sirens’ to an emergency call and was stopped at a traffic light,” Jason Schechterle recalls. He describes the event as part of an average, ordinary day in his life as a Phoenix, Arizona, police officer. “There was a taxicab driver nearby who had suddenly suffered a seizure, and lost control of his cab,” he explains, “and he just happened to be heading toward the intersection where I was parked.” The cab hurtled through the intersection at more than 100 miles per hour, striking Jason’s patrol car—the car exploded, consuming the car and Jason in flames. In seconds, Jason’s life was irrevocably changed.
