Flat tire incident renews motorist’s faith in humanity

I would like to use your paper to thank two Good Samaritans that were kind enough to help a damsel in distress a week ago Saturday.

I was headed up the road to Hoosier Pass when an object resembling a snowball in the middle of the road turned out to be a tire-killing rock.

Not having had occasion to change a tire on my own in many years, and unable to get cell service in that particular spot to call either my husband or AAA to come to my rescue, I suspect I appeared to be quite lost, when a young couple pulled up and asked if I had a spare.

The gentleman’s name is Trey. I do not know the woman’s name. They immediately pulled in behind my car and had my tire changed in no time. As the spare had very little air, they followed me down to the Conoco station at Broken Lance Road to make sure that I had no further problems.

While I never did get to go cross country skiing that day, I was reminded that there are still many good people that are willing to take time out of their busy days to help a stranger. Thank you again.
