I would like to thank the members of the East Chicago Police Department for their assistance. I was on my way to run an errand before beginning a long drive to relocate for a new job opportunity when a vehicle flew through a four-way stop sign and collided with me, sending my vehicle directly into the path of a fire hydrant.
Thank you to the off-duty officer, who just happened to be coming the opposite way, for taking our information and radioing it in. Thank you to Officer Lopez and your partner (I apologize, I have forgotten your name) for making sure I was okay and escorting me home.
It seems ridiculous to say it this way because words alone are unable to express my gratitude, but thank you. I appreciate you, your kindness, your precision and your professionalism.
Brian Gueyser, East Chicago
