Resident thankful for help after car went into ditch


The Clinton Herald

---- — I want to say thank you to the very kind gentleman who stopped to help me after I put my car in a ditch on 16th Street Northwest (across from the Vista Grande) on a Saturday night in early December. It was a very cold and windy night. He crawled under my car on the cold ground to check it out and stood outside while my car was being towed out of the ditch. A cop showed up to see if I was OK and this gentleman left before I was able to get his name and tell him how grateful I am for his help.

This just goes to show there are still generous people out there willing to help no matter what the situation is.

It may seem as a simple gesture but it meant so much to me.

Thank you again!
