BROOKFIELD, N.S.–A quick-thinking RCMP officer from Nova Scotia is being praised for risking his own life and preventing a possible train derailment.

Const. Frank Deschenes was among a number of officers responding to single-vehicle accident just south of Brookfield early Sunday.

The accident left the vehicle stuck on some railway tracks, and a CN freight train was only minutes away.

Deschenes crashed his police cruiser into the car, pushing it out of the way with 45 seconds to spare.

The RCMP say Deschenes’ selfless actions saved lives.
