Trucker “gives a person hope all truck drivers aren’t bad” after going above and beyond to help a stranded elderly couple


A truck driver is being called a “prince of men” after helping an elderly couple deal with car troubles that left them stranded in 102 degree weather. 

Trucker Rene Bremner was traveling near Cache Creek, British Columbia, Canada when he noticed a couple stopped on the side of the road and pulled over to help. 

“My aging grandparents had a flat tire and it turned out their spare tire was also flat,” the couple’s grandson, Bill Barr, explained in a Facebook post. 

“This guy must of [sic.] sensed that they were in trouble,” Barr continued. 

“He took time out of his I’m sure long day and changed the blown tire and air[ed] up the spare with an air hose he had on his truck and then put it on and followed my grandparents to Cache Creek in case he had to air it up again.”

In addition to going out of his way to escort the elderly couple to a safe location, Barr says the trucker later called the restaurant where the couple grabbed lunch as they awaited their new tire and paid for their meal. 

“Does anyone know who drives this truck?” Barr continues. 

“Sir, you are an inspiration to mankind. As my grandparents say, you’re a PRINCE OF MEN.

Well sir I’m in dept [sic.] to you and gives a person hope all truck drivers aren’t bad. Many thanks.”
