Colonel Knight, Director of the FHP,

Driving home on I-95 from Daytona this evening in the rain my car hydroplaned and I spun off the road. Miraculously, my 6 year old daughter and I were unharmed, but our car suffered a flat and was pretty deep in the mud and tall grasses.

Trooper Vega responded, and went far above and beyond the call of duty for us. He helped us stay calm and even got the spare tire ready while we waited for my husband, all the while getting soaked in the rain!

Once my husband arrived, the sun had set, so Trooper Vega held a flashlight and assisted with the tire change, then followed us back to a service station to make sure we got off the interstate safely.

He spent over an hour helping us tonight, and we appreciate every minute of his calm, reassuring and caring assistance! His acts of kindness will not soon be forgotten.

An email is certainly not adequate recognition for this exceptional trooper, but hopefully informing you of his actions will spur appropriate commendation.
