Shaquille O’Neal Pulls Over To Help Stranded Driver After Highway Crash.

Shaquille O’Neal is considered one of the greatest NBA players of all time, but since retiring, he’s proven himself a hero off the court as well.

From buying extra-large shoes for a teen who couldn’t afford them to helping another find the perfect prom suit, the basketball star is passionate about giving back and lending a hand wherever he can. So, when he saw a crash unfold on a Florida highway this month, he didn’t think twice before pulling over. He even stayed with the driver until the police arrived!

Check out the Alachua County Sheriff’s dash cam footage of O’Neal helping the woman below, and share to spread thanks to this compassionate soul!

Yesterday, Shaquille O'Neal was traveling through Alachua County on I-75 when he witnessed a crash. He stopped to check on the welfare of the driver and remained with her until law enforcement arrived. He fist bumped Deputies Purington and Dillon before going on his way. Hey Basketball Cop Foundation you're not the only one that knows Shaq.
