Letter about a good samaritan

To the Editor,

On Sunday, December 9, my family and I were returning home from La Crosse via Highway 16. About a mile from Rushford, we hit an ice patch, lost control, rolled and ended up in the ditch. Fortunately, while our vehicle was totaled, we only had minor cuts and bruises. As we got out, dazed from our wreckage, a hunter drove by, turned around and stopped. He stayed with us for a bit, then when we called a friend to pick us up, the hunter said he could just run home, switch vehicles and take us home, which he did.

Gary, we don’t know your last name, but we owe you many thanks.

Thomas A. Szyszkiewicz

Peterson, MN
