How to keep your family safe in a busy traffic environment

A couple of weeks ago, a truck driver from Florida stopped on the side of the road to help a woman get home after a night of drinking.

In a moment of compassion, he also helped her get her vehicle out of the street.

The driver was in good spirits after driving her home, but that didn’t stop her from getting into a dispute with a woman in the back seat of the truck.

“I was like, ‘I’m going to give you a ride home because I’m going out there to help you,'” the woman told ABC News affiliate WPLG.

When the woman got out of her vehicle, the driver slammed on his brakes and told her, “You’re not going to be driving home today, you’re not even going to get out of here!”

“You’re a little too loud, you can’t listen to me,” the woman replied.

With that, the truck driver pulled off and the woman started yelling at him to stop.

She says the driver responded, “Why are you doing that?

You’re a white man.”

The woman said she wanted to call 911, but the truck’s driver, who was in a white shirt, pulled her into the passenger seat and started screaming at her.

At this point, the woman decided to tell the driver to leave her alone.

That’s when the driver pulled out his gun and started shooting.

The woman and her boyfriend, who are black, were both shot in the chest.

After the incident, the couple got into a heated argument, and the driver tried to drive off, but she was able to get away.

WPLG reports that the woman is in stable condition and the boyfriend is not.
