At 10:30 am on February 27th, I was involved in a two-car collision on 45th Street and Second Avenue South in West Fargo. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries, just the cars.

My car ended up in a weird angle in a snow bank, making it difficult to get out of the car. However, there were a number of people who stopped to help.

A young man who came to the car worried I would move but helped me get out of the car and off the snow bank. I didn’t get his name.

Then a family stopped and sat me in their car to warm up and took my glasses and other personal items out of the car for me.

Then Officer Brown and other police officers showed up with firefighters and paramedics to check on me and the rest of the people involved.

I want to thank the young man who helped me out of the car. the Abrahamson family who went out of their way to help and get me home; Brown and the other West Fargo police officers; as well as the West Fargo firefighters and paramedics.

I would also like to thank the young men involved who looked for me and stayed on the site, as well as the people who stopped to help. It’s really good to know that we live in a community where people still take care of their neighbors.

I appreciate the help from everyone that day. Thank you all.
