Icy Road Helpers

Posted on Thu, Dec 19, 2013 at 8:16 AM

Thank you so much to the 4 men who lept to my assistance last night at the intersection of Maynard and Cornwallis. My car got stuck on a shelf of ice, despite the new winter tires and before I had time to try the gas twice I had one pedestrian offer to help push the car. Within moments he was joined by two others while the fourth went to stop traffic for a moment so I wouldn't just launch right into the side of another vehicle when it did come free. There was no convenient place to stop after success was had, and I feel terrible that I didn't get to say thank you other than yelling it through my window! You guys made my evening, and cemented my belief that our neighborhood is wonderful. —Woman in the green camry
