NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Recently, I was traveling on Valley Road in Neshannock Township.
As I approached a sharp bend, I noticed an orange cone on the shoulder, which I figured was there because of a pothole.
However, as I rounded the bend, it became apparent the road surface was like a skating rink. Before I knew it, my car was spinning and I ended up on the opposite side of the road in a ditch. By the grace of God, I was not hit by another car and I was not injured.
Within about five minutes, a kind gentleman came out with a shovel. He tried to shovel the ice from underneath my tires, but it was no use.
The gentleman told me the bend had been iced over since the night prior and he had contacted the township. All they did was put a cone on the shoulder.
Is Neshannock Township running that short on salt that it has to leave a dangerous road untreated? The gentleman told me there are many accidents on that bend each year. I think the township should take action before someone is killed.
Although this was a frightening experience, it was also a heart-warming one. The assistance and kindness that were given to me from that gentleman, and another man who stopped to try to help, did not go unnoticed.
I also am grateful to the owner of Nick’s Auto Body. He happened to be driving by in his truck. He said he had a chain in his truck and he offered to pull my car out of the ditch. He had my car out in five minutes and didn’t charge me a dime.
These men are proof that there are still people out there who are willing to help a person in need.
