Four Wheel Drive Angels - Angel Stories

By: John Haas

Location: Memphis TN USA

It was in December, somewhere between 1983 Christmas and The New Year [ the Solemnity of Mary ], and I was driving my wife's car. The ice on the streets was of Olympic game quality.
I was well familiar with driving on snow and ice and was always able to pull out of any problem.


I soon found an exception. A motorist pulled out across an intersection in my path which forced me to take evasive action. I avoided hitting that person, (he actually watched me headed for trouble and left) but as a result of my sudden correction, I slid onto a slippery slope at the road's edge.


I struggled and fought the slope but eventually I gently slid into a ditch at the roadside some ten feet below the level of the road. I was not hurt, nor was the car even damaged. I was, however, profoundly stuck. There was no driving out of this one! I sat in the car, some six years before the era of cell phones, pondering my plight. I had been there for about twenty minutes, still without a solution. I heard a voice coming up above me from the road. There were two men in an old red Ford Four-wheel-drive Pickup truck.


One of them yelled down to me. "Are you alright?"


I answered affirmatively.


He asked, "What are you doing down there?"


I responded, "Well, things looked rather interesting down here, so I thought I'd come down for a closer look."


I heard some distant talking and laughter coming from within the truck.


He asked, '"Would you like for us to pull you out?"


I replied, "Sure, if you think you can do it. It's really slick around here"


With that they lowered a chain and one of them attached it to the frame of the car.


Amazingly, they had it up on the road in minutes!


"I really appreciate you guys" I declared and offered them a Twenty. I heard them decline it.

As I was reaching for the money I looked up from my billfold...and they were gone. The truck with the two "men" could not be seen or found.
