A helping hand by Lakewood police officers
On a recent afternoon, I was driving south on Union Boulevard near 6th Avenue. The right lane was blocked by two Lakewood police cars and I assumed an accident had occurred. When I got closer, I could see a motorist pushing his stalled vehicle down the street, his right hand through the window on the steering wheel — an experience I suspect we can all relate to. But as I got even closer, I was surprised to see two Lakewood police officers pushing the vehicle, running at near full speed in 95-degree weather! I imagine they saved the driver a towing fee while clearing the traffic lane in the shortest possible time.
I’m guessing this story won’t make the paper, so I just wanted to share it with other Post readers and say: Thanks, guys — nice work.
