EX-INMATE MISSES JOB INTERVIEW TO HELP DRIVER IN CRASH

*** begin quote ***

WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) — A former inmate on his way to a job interview is being lauded for helping the driver of a car that flipped over on a Connecticut highway.

Aaron Tucker was traveling by bus through Westport Wednesday when he saw the crash and jumped off to help the driver.

The bus left the scene and Tucker missed his interview. But he says he’s since gotten other job offers.

He tells WABC-TV it was “the right thing” to do.

A GoFundMe was set up to raise money for Tucker, who served nearly two years in prison on a weapons charge, and his 21-month-old son.

I chipped in. Maybe you might want to? You can’t always just applaud for the “peanut gallery”.
