I view myself as the person whose life was probably saved by these 911 callers. I travel the roads in the wee hours of the morning to open my coffee shop and it has always been my fear that I would encounter wildlife on the road or a drunk driver. Thank you to all the alert travelers who called in and the officers who kept this man from harming anyone or himself.
