Dove Creek: Help With Tire Blowout

On Sept. 19, Judy Pappin, who lives northeast of Durango, wrote to CDOT to say:

"I would like to say thank-you to Jeremy Lawrence of CODT for his assistance and concern for my welfare on  Fri., Sept. 12, 2014.

"I was driving through Dove Creek, on my way to Durango , when the gooseneck horse trailer I was hauling had a blow out on the right rear.  A passing motorist flagged me down and we were very shortly joined on the side of the road by Jeremy, who had also been trying to get to me to let me know I had a dangerous situation going on.

"With Jeremy's assistance and expertise, the tire was replaced, my rig and I were safe and I was on my way.  I would genuinely like to thank Jeremy for making a potentially BAD situation into a safe rescue of a motorist in a difficult situation.  His experience and knowledge were obvious and greatly appreciated.  A Sincere Thank-You and Regards."

Lawrence is TM-I for Patrol 1 at Dove Creek, Durango Maintenance Section 3, Region 5.
