“I was Just Actually Telling My Son a Bible Story on the Way Home from My Mom’s. I Said This is a Perfect Example of Kind of Practicing What You Preach”

On 24 March 2013, Nathan Flege needed some help after running into trouble while driving his small sports car east on Interstate 275 in a snowstorm to his home in West Chester, Ohio. Mr. Flege said, “I was in the center lane and just driving along, and it spun around on me when I came over this overpass. Ended up in the ditch, tried to get it out, got it stuck in the mud. Nothing really happened, didn’t hit anybody.” Colerain Township Police Officer Jamie Pinley quickly showed up and so did Colerain Township resident Angelo Keeling. Both are Good Samaritans. Mr. Keeling said, “I was just actually telling my son a Bible story on the way home from my mom’s. I said this is a perfect example of kind of practicing what you preach, so to speak, so I just pulled over and asked him if he needed some help.” Mr. Flege did. Mr. Keeling attached one end of a strap to Mr. Flege’s car and the other end to his own vehicle, and Officer Pinley got behind Mr. Flege’s car and pushed. It worked. Mr. Flege’s car quickly reached solid pavement. Mr. Keeling said, “I’m glad we got him out. It makes the trip worth it to be successful.” Mr. Flege, whose car was undamaged, said that he is tired of winter weather: “I’m ready for some palm trees and some sunshine.”
