On Saturday I was driving North on I-95 from Fayetteville when I a hit a piece of metal in the road blowing out my tire. I had my infant and small child in the car at the time. While I am more than capable of changing a tire, I was petrified to do so due to the fact that the shoulder is narrow, the speed limit is 70mph and people were not moving into the left lane. I call my road side assistance but they wouldn’t be to me for more than hour. I started working on the tire myself. Loosening lug nuts between burst of traffic. As I was lossening the third lug nuts I looked up to see and officer turning on his lights and pulling behind me. I don’t think I have ever been so happy to see blue flashing lights pull up behind my car. Officer Forsht approached me and told me he would change the tire and to stand back and watch traffic. Because he was stopped traffic was forced to switch lanes. He had the tire swapped out in a matter of minutes. Once the tire was switch Office Forsht escorted me to the next exit where I could replace my donut with a real tire and be on my way. Office Forsht is the absolute picture of protect and serve. If he had not stopped this story could have ended much differently! Thank you for your service!!!
