My husband and I were driving home from the Florida Keys to Ohio in the early morning hours of April 12, 2008 via the Florida Turnpike northbound. We were approaching the (I believe) 188th St and Kendall Drive exit when we experienced a major "truck tire explosion". The driver side rear tire literally exploded. We were towing our boat also. It was a very dramatic incident for both of us. Trooper Transue was headed southbound on the turnpike and immediately turned around and came up behind us and stayed with us until my husband was able to change the tire and continue north. We thank God we were safe and also would like very much to thank Trooper Transue. We truly appreciated his help. He was very nice and showed true concern over our situation.

We hope this thank you finds both Trooper Transue and his Superiors.
