I wanted to express my gratitude to Florida State Trooper R.C. Espinola. I was on my way home from a doctor’s appointment when my van completely broke down on Curlew Ave and US 19. I am 9 months pregnant and had no way of contacting my family as I did not have a cell phone. I managed to pull into the Perkins parking lot before the van died and then I spotted his car. I asked if he knew where a pay phone was. He helped me contact my family so they could come and pick me up. He was very kind and polite and definitely went above and beyond to help me. He contacted a local auto body shop he recommended which then towed my van, purchased it as it was no longer drivable and sold me a vehicle at a great price.
Thanks to Trooper Espinola my family has a very dependable vehicle and I was able to get home safe and sound in a very desperate time of need. He also alerted me of a cell phone program which is very affordable so now if I do get stuck again I won’t have to worry about locating a pay phone. I wish there were more people like him. My family and I am are so thankful for his assistance.
Thank you for all of your help!
