I want to thank everyone who helped me at the accident scene on Jan. 4 at 6320 78th Avenue, Milan.

My car was hit as I started to turn into my driveway on 78th Avenue. From the witness who stopped and gave me her phone number and address and waited until the police arrived, to the man who stopped and directed traffic until police arrived, and another young man who stopped to make sure I was OK, I really appreciated the kindness everyone showed.

When the Coal Valley policeman arrived, he began directing traffic. He was very helpful. And to the deputy who came from the Rock Island County Sheriff -- he was especially kind as I was shaking from the impact plus the cold.
He quickly put me in the back of his warm car.

May God bless you all.
Joyce Clemmons,
Milan
