Letters to the Editor

You all have our heartfelt thanks

On Aug. 21, my husband and I were involved in a car accident on Interstate 110.

Thankfully, we weren’t seriously injured, just minor cuts and bruises as well as the shock of the situation, but I want to express my gratitude to the responding officers: Officer Teates and his partner — whose name I didn’t get due to the confusion.

Their kindness and compassion were greatly appreciated. They stayed on the scene until the tow truck got our car and even helped me to my sister’s vehicle. These men obviously live by the motto “To protect and serve.”

The EMTs could not have been more helpful. They were quick to arrive, quick to help and made sure we were not seriously injured.

I would also like to thank the driver from ABCO Towing, whose first statement when he arrived was “Is everybody OK?” He was so professional and courteous.

And last, but certainly not least, there were at least eight to 10 other people on the road who stopped and made sure we were OK.

To the two guys who came over with bottles of water, the lady who came up and said she was a physical therapist and asked if there was anything she could do and especially to the man who was afraid I was going to pass out and wouldn’t leave until we were safely in my sister’s vehicle: Your willingness to stop for two strangers to offer aid will never be forgotten.

We thank you and appreciate all of your kindness.
