Good Samaritans come to the rescue after blow-out

Recently I experienced my first tire blowout while driving to Oxford on Highway 6.  Needless to say, it was not fun at all and scared me to death.  When it happened, I didn’t completely understand what had actually occurred.  

After getting over my initial panic, I realized I was just a few miles down the road from Taylor‘s Auto and called Les who is one of my advertising customers at The Panolian.  

While waiting for Les, a young man named Emmit Shegog pulled over and asked me if I needed help.  Said I had someone on the way, but he insisted I let him try and help, and he began the process of getting out the jack and removing the shredded tire.

Not long after, Les arrived and together they made what could have been a much worse experience kind of an adventure.  

I want to thank them both for their help and I especially want to commend Emmit on being a good Samaritan.  

Unfortunately, we don’t run across to many of them any more.  If you haven’t checked your tires recently, I recommend you do!
