Driver stuck in snow gets towed by stranger.

Close up of the back of a car in deep snow with a yellow tow cable attached to it.

“I would like to nominate the kind Father & son of Dark Lane in Blackrod Bolton who rescued me in the snow on Tuesday 16th January.

I got stuck in the snow while driving to work from Wigan to Bolton, going down the Hill on Dark Lane. Suddenly the traffic came to a standstill and nothing was moving.

It transpired a car was blocking the road going downhill and with the snow it was Impossible to go back up the hill.

After over an hour of sitting in my car not moving a kind stranger came to my window and said ‘don’t worry, love, my Dad lives at the top of the Hill and he’s got a 4 by 4 . We’ll tow you back up the Hill!’

He then proceeded to fit my towing eye (which I didn’t even know I had). They had me back up that Hill in no time giving me instructions on where to steer while being towed and pushed.

I can’t thank these Strangers enough for their kindness & I will be eternally grateful to them. I only wish I’d have asked their names.”

Big thanks to Julie for allowing us to share this.
