I would like to complement Officer Matthew Simmons. On Monday, March 20th my 16 year old daughter and myself were coming to Lake City from Gainesville at 10 o clock at night. I had spent all day with my son who had to have surgery to set a broken bone. I was only thinnking of getting home and getting to bed when I had a flat tire. I have a back injury and can not change a tire. I called the wrecker I service I always use and they were busy and it would have been several hours before he could get to me. I was waiting for my son in law to get from Lake City to mile 404 to change the tire when Officer Simmons pulled up behind me. When I told him what was going on he proceded to change the tire for me and told me to call my son in law and tell him not to come. He very quickly changed the tire and helped me get everything back in my vehicle so that I was soon on my way. I was very impressed with the quick help and manners of this young man. It is so nice to feel safe on the road knowing that we have officers of this caliber watching out for us.
