Today my car died in the middle of the road as I was driving to a mechanic to get the battery checked.
While I was stopped a man in a black sedan pulled over to take a look at my car. He told me that it looked like the alternator wasn’t charging the battery so a simple jump start wouldn’t help. He said I would need to get it towed and then drove away.
As I was on the phone with roadside assistance a tow truck drove past me, already towing a car, and offered me help. She called dispatch, gave me a card, and was on her way.
Moments after calling the tow service an officer in a truck passed me and rolled down his window, asking if I needed help. I assured him I was getting a truck to give me a tow and just after he left the tow truck came by to pick me up and tow my car to my mechanic.
My car is getting repaired and I’m home safe.
