Sometimes even doing a good deed can go wrong. Carl Wheeler stopped to help a minivan on the side of the road on I-40/85 early one July morning. A drunk driver collided with the parked minivan, and Carl was hurt badly. Darren Jones, the driver of the out of gas minivan died on the way to the hospital.
Curtis Lutterloh plead guilty to drinking and driving…
Phillip Jones tells the story on WFMY’s news blog: DigTriad.com
I won’t retell the same story here. I just want to say how very sad I am for Carl. He could really use our help. After the drunk driver pleaded guilty, Carl’s family got very little in restitution. It comes nowhere near to paying the costs associated with the injuries he suffered (and continues to suffer from).
