The following letter was written by Heather Walker, a citizen of Davis County:

“I encountered a hero today. Sheriff Todd Richardson of Davis County came to Lily and my rescue today. Heading southbound on I-15 approaching Farmington my back left tire went flat. Fortunately I could feel a pull and heard it and was able to pull over, but we were stuck on the left side of the road with minimal space between us and the other cars going 75+ past us. I called road side assistance and my husband and then just sat there frozen in the car with my 9-year old who we were trying to get her to her dance competition in Magna. I really was terrified to get out and just kept an eye in my rear view mirror keeping tabs on approaching cars that they weren’t drifting over.

Maternal instincts set in to keep Lily safe. Major relief came when I saw an unmarked police car heading the other way, mind you, pull into the emergency turn around and back up to our car. He was the most compassionate person and a true hero at that moment. Not even on duty, with his daughter in the car he came to our rescue. We worked trying to get the spare tire from under the car (which is a whole story itself) and then proceeded changing it all himself. Thank you to that amazing man and I pray that many, many blessings come your way! Words from my Lily: thank you for stopping and helping us. I’m grateful for that.”
