Meaner and I maybe saved a man's life

But we don't know what happened with him after we left, so maybe- just by chance somebody on here knows him. He's an older man- probably in his late 70's-80's, drives a black Ford F250- has some stickers of mules or donkeys on the back windshield.

We came up on him on the freeway going about 10 mph. People were honking and going arond him. But when we passed him we realized he was slumped over in his seat and he hit the wall, and was actually following the wall. We stopped and waited for him to pass us on the exit, then after much anger from other drivers who just wanted to go around him, we finally got behind him again- intending to follow him. Then we realized he was not driving the truck, but the truck was just drifting to the right- headed for a huge ditch.

Toni stopped the car and we ran after the truck- I got to the driver's side and he noticed me and punched the brake with his left foot (stroke, maybe?), and Meaner jumped in the passenger side and put the truck in park and turned it off. When I asked if he was ok, he only replied that he thought he was.

Then he got angry at us. He couldn't or wouldn't tell his name. Refused help from the EMS. He didn't know he had hit the wall, and he couldn't get his seatbelt off. He was obviously very confused, but very angry. He also kept trying to drive, but his front passenger tire was flat. Anyway, because he had been involved in an accident the police were called and he didn't have a choice but to be treated. We left after the officer talked to us.

Does anybody know anything about him? :/:

. good on ya' ma'am.
Its hard to understand all the people that just ignore things like things.
It takes a strong person to actually help.

Good job. Most people just ignore these things and keep going. Way to take action...whether he was appreciative or not...I'm sure his family would be!

You guys did a good thing!


As far as the guy, he may have had a stroke, a seizure, been stoned or drunk. :dontknow:
He may have also not wanted to have the police come out for other reasons.

Reminds me of when Martin, myself and another rider stopped for an older guy who wrecked his bike at the light in front of us.
He had smacked his head pretty good, (no helmet) and he had a deep gash in it.

He resisted letting us or the EMT's help him when they arrived. He was very insistent to not call the police, who of course were on their way.
Long story short, he was a convicted child molestor, and was violating his probation by drinking.:/:

that would be slightly uncomfortable.

Back to the original post, my dad is one of those people that gets really grouchy when it comes to medical issues, or uncomfort. I feel sorry for the nurses last week. He may have just been confused and hurting :dontknow:

Okay - The man was NOT drunk. We believe he didn't know his own name. There could have been a previous wreck (The left side of his truck was scraped with white paint - but we only saw him hit on the right.)

What we really want to know is if anyone knew or knows this story and can let us know the outcome?

So - I have a question for all you who scream past people on the side of the road - while honking or shooting the 1 finger salute - what goes through your head? Why don't you look to see if that person needs help and is what you are racing towards more important than a persons life?

When Toni told me the story I could not believe how indifferent and uncaring that a number of people like that can be. I am glad that my wife and her sis are better than that.

That was a good thing to do. At least you knew to do the right thing even after the fact.

I've changed so many tires for other people. Sometimes I really dont want to, but end up stopping to help anyway. I always just think "what if that was my Mom, or Grandmother."

He actually slapped my hand when I tried to remove his keys from the ignition. He may have thought we were trying to steal his truck. We felt and feel very sad for him. We also hope he is okay today.

Yea I stop for women and old people. If it is a man with a flat, he can change his own. Only bad one I have had is one old man said he set his brake and didn't and the truck landed on my chest.

But in answer to your question Toni, I try and help if it looks like they need it.
