Trucker Makes a Motorist Pull Over

You're meant to drive only as fast as your guardian angel can fly, but what happens when your guardian angel is in the lane right next to you?

Sometimes the people closest to you cannot help you when you're drowning yet a perfect stranger comes along and offers to carry you while you tread water. 

The following story is about a couple of truckers and, whether true or not, we believe in the message.

A trucker was traveling through rural North Carolina on I-95 when a brown sedan merged onto the highway. It weaved back and forth between lanes, causing the driver of the truck to shift into a lower gear.

At first, he thought the driver was drunk, but when he came closer, the trucker saw an old man shaking uncontrollably behind the wheel.

He noticed a Citizen’s Band antenna whipping to and fro as the car jerked between lanes, so he called on the radio: 

Amazingly, he did!

The trucker pulled up behind the car and climbed from his cab. The elderly man staggered from his auto and fell into the trucker’s arms.

He poured out a story of months of fear and pain that accompanied the illness of his only daughter. He was returning from the hospital where it had been decided that she would cease any further treatment.

In the hospital, he had remained “strong” and stoic for his daughter, but once out on the road, he said he just fell apart.

The two men talked for the good part of an hour. The father eventually decided to share his pain about his daughter and said he felt good enough to drive home.

The men embraced and the trucker followed him for 50 miles. As they drove along, the two talked together on the radio. The older man finally acknowledged that his exit was ahead and thanked his new friend again for all his help.

The trucker worriedly asked if he was sure he could make it home all right when suddenly, a third voice broke in on the conversation:

Glancing in his rearview mirror, he saw a livestock truck move into the exit lane behind the brown sedan and he knew that the old man would be okay.
