Opinion: Motorist thankful to many helpers

I was on my way in to Middlebury Feb. 14 along with my son and two dogs on Route 30 in Cornwall. I hit a patch of ice, skidded across the road and rolled over the car.??Three people (a couple and a nurse) stopped immediately and came to my rescue. The man was able to open my car door and release my seatbelt. They comforted me, my son, and dogs and kept us safe until the ambulance and police arrived.
Words cannot convey how very thankful I am. Please know that I will be forever grateful for your quick response and selfless acts.
Two ambulance crews from the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association and the Cornwall Volunteer Fire Department, along with Vermont State Trooper Busby, were on the scene in a few minutes
I would like to thank all of the people who stopped to help. How comforting it is to know that there are people who, out of the goodness of their hearts, stopped and helped us. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.?
Michael Dowd
