To the editor:
On Nov. 19, as I was driving on 25th Street and Louisiana at 5:30 p.m., I swerved to avoid hitting a large pothole on the west side of the street. My Toyota then climbed an embankment, hit a utility pole and came to rest. My car was totaled, and suddenly, a good Samaritan appeared on the scene and extricated me from the vehicle whose front had collapsed on me, trapping me.
Other bystanders then called 911. Officer Leo Souders was the first to appear at the scene and rushed me to the emergency room where I was treated for multiple injuries. He then returned to emergency and remained with me, offering me comfort and support until I was discharged later that night.
My reason for writing this letter is to thank my good angels, Mrs. Proull and Officer Souders, who, on a busy game night, went far above the call of duty. May God bless them!
