Deputy’s Unexpected Response To A Stalled Vehicle On A Roadway Is Warming Hearts.

A helping hand in times of need can often come from unexpected places.

When Deputies Kendrae Traylor and Ryan Graham spotted a vehicle stalled out in the middle of a roadway in Cleveland County, Oklahoma, they went to investigate. Turns out, it was a new driver trying their best to navigate a stick shift – to no avail, it seems.

We imagine this stressed young woman only felt more nervous when these officers arrived, but that feeling no doubt faded when these kind officers offered to help.

“I asked her if I could help assist her, and I kind of went through the steps of helping her out,” Deputy Traylor said. “Once we were in an empty parking lot, I helped her step by step understand how to drive a manual transmission.”

With that, the young woman was able to go about the rest of her evening, far more prepared for future drives than when she first got in the car!

“The citizens of Cleveland County allow us to serve them, and so I think that’s a very important part, not only for the sheriff’s office, but individually for myself,” he added.
