Good Samaritan and Retired Army Captain Dies While Helping Motorist Change a Tire

There aren’t many good Samaritans left out there, but those who are, certainly deserve to be credited for their generosity. According to the Fox2News St. Louis website, one retired Army Captain was killed recently while helping a stranded motorist change a flat tire on I-44.

The incident appears to have been caused by a tractor trailer. The tractor trailer hit the Captain’s parked vehicle, which then hit him. The semi went on to hit a car, which collided with a truck. The accident was a chain reaction of sorts, but ultimately, it caused the death of the retired Army Captain.

The tragedy in this story is unreal. While I-44 is a very busy highway most of the time, this was certainly an accident that could have been avoided. Many people don’t realize that truck drivers are held to a higher standard on the road, and it remains to be seen what caused him to hit the parked vehicle.
