Modesto steps up af­ter my ac­ci­dent

The Modesto Bee - - Opinion - – Margy Gish, Lodi

I was in an ac­ci­dent on High­way 99 on Oct. 26. For­tu­nately, my small dog and I were not hurt. I write to thank the won­der­ful peo­ple who cared for all of us af­ter the col­li­sion. I’m not sure if they were high­way pa­trol or lo­cal po­lice, but when I asked where they were from, the an­swer was Modesto. Three friendly and cour­te­ous of­fi­cers came quickly, took charge and ul­ti­mately one of the of­fi­cers pulled up be­hind my car and waited for the tow truck to ar­rive. I can as­sure you it was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

The driver from Mike’s Scenic Tow­ing was equally as nice.

While I was wait­ing for all the pa­per­work af­ter the ac­ci­dent, two very nice women EMTs stopped by to make sure the dog and I were fine. They spent ex­tra time mak­ing us feel at ease.

Hav­ing an ac­ci­dent on a busy free­way is not what you want. But what a dif­fer­ence it made to work with such com­pe­tent and thought­ful peo­ple. It speaks well of the Modesto area, and the or­ga­ni­za­tions they serve. What they do, and how they do it, re­ally mat­ters.
