An 87-year-old Nevada woman rushing to see her son, who was in critical condition in a Salt Lake City hospital 350 miles away, got pulled over for a traffic violation by a Utah State Trooper — and then she backed her vehicle into his patrol car.
It turned out to be a blessing for the white-haired mother, and one that set off a chain reaction of professional courtesy.
Jeff Jones determined she was in no state to drive and made a call.
The relay anchor, State Trooper Andrew Pollard, told KUTV-2, “To have (hospital staff) there waiting, to hold her hand as we walked into the hospital… it was very, very rewarding.”
