My husband and I want your readers to know an angel in disguise lives in your area.
On Aug. 28, the instrument panel in our car indicated we had a tire losing pressure. Because we were traveling on Interstate 465 on the southwest corner of Indianapolis, we were hoping to get somewhere out of the traffic before stopping to check on our problem. As we were nearing the 10th street exit, the smoke began to roll and we were flat.
As we were pulling to the side of the road, another car hurriedly pulled off in front and a young man was running back to check on us. He said he had been following for a time and could tell we were developing a problem. He also mentioned he often stops to check on travelers with vehicle problems.
With his help of getting these new style jacks unfolded, he quickly assisted my husband in finishing the tire change, and we were soon on the road again. The tire and rim were so heated, they hesitated to put the damaged tire back in the trunk cavity, so propped it up with the jack and wrench etc.
When is the last time you checked the tire pressure in your spare tire or "doughnut" spare? It is so easy to forget. I occasionally nag my husband to check the pressure in our spare, and this time it was OK.
Our angel told us his name is Mr. Sellers from Valparaiso. He would not take any compensation other than our sincere thanks.
If you are acquainted with a young man by the name of Sellers, please let him know you have seen our message to him. Also, how grateful four people 70+ years old appreciated his taking time to share in our plight.
