On December 14, 2015, a Houston deputy put his life on the line to stop a drunk driver going the wrong direction on the highway.


We hear about wrong-way drivers too often on Texas highways and, unfortunately, a large number of these cases end with a crash, killing or injuring the driver, police officers, and other innocent people. Thanks to Deputy Jason Mosley, however, this story has a different ending.


In the early hours of Monday, December 14, deputies got a report of a wrong-way driver heading inbound in the outbound lanes of the Westpark Toll Road. Mosley worked to keep traffic behind him, then, used his patrol car to get that driver to stop.


In released dashboard footage from the patrol car you can see the shocking moment when Mosley turns his patrol car into the front corner of the car that was flying down the toll road.


The driver, 18-year-old Gabriella Vialta, was not hurt but has been charged with driving while intoxicated. The deputy walked away with a sore neck and back but was not seriously injured.
Police officers have a dangerous job keeping the community safe and many times have to put themselves in harms way for the sake of others. This job requires thinking on your feet in order to save lives and Deputy Mosley’s courageous act was no exception.


“A lot of people talk about putting their lives on the line for someone else,” Capt. Terry Albritton, Mosley’s boss, told WWMT-TV. “But it’s special when you see someone actually do it. so very proud of him and the decision he made.”
