Lucky Accident With A State Trooper Helps A Mom Get To Her Sick Son

After a state trooper pulled her over for tailgating and let her off with a warning, an 87-year-old woman on a road trip to see her ailing son accidentally backed into the cop's car.

So, Utah's KUTV reports, police gave her a lift — not to jail, but to her son in Ogden. The trip involved a 180-mile relay by what Helen Smith later described as "four good-lookin' patrol boys" serving the four counties between her encounter with the trooper and her son.
