Letter: Thanks deserved for unknown officer’s help

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, January 15, 2020

I just want to thank a policeman or a trooper for being so helpful to me on Saturday night. I didn’t get his name and I didn’t get a good look at the car.

I was coming off I-85 at Innes Street and was going to turn into the parking lot for Chick-fil-a. It was raining, and I couldn’t see very well.

Instead, I turned into the off ramp for southbound traffic getting off at the Salisbury exit.

This policeman just happened to be coming off that exit. Thank the Lord he flashed his blue light at me.

He waited until I backed out onto Innes Street and followed me to the parking lot that I intended to go to in the first place. He came up to my car and wanted to know if I was OK.

I explained to him what happened. He said he thought what I explained was what occurred and that he was glad that he was there.

So was I.

Whoever he was, I just want to thank him for being so kind and helpful and being at the right place at the right time. God bless him.
