Jeremy Veach is a policeman who was on his routine police stop when something horrible happened. Officer Veach had made a traffic stop and was speaking to Candice Duffey, a woman who had problems with her car, when all of a sudden he was hit by a falling tree. The officer was struck pretty hard by the big falling branches and fell to the ground.
Fortunately, Veach was not unconscious and managed to get to his feet being helped by his colleague. The whole thing took place in Iowa, in the town of Centerville. Tom Demry, the chief of the Centerville police later commented that officer Jeremy Veach was lucky to even be alive considering how hard he was hit. Even though officer Veach was injured he helped Mrs. Duffey out of her seriously damaged car. Luckily, both she and officer Veach suffered only minor injuries and were promptly transported to a hospital.
