The Good News: Trooper Prays With Driver Upset Over Daughter’s Cancer [VIDEO]
"This man already has enough, I'm not going to write him any paperwork for a ticket or even a warning."
Indiana State Police Sgt. Todd Durnil noticed a semi truck speeding down an Indiana highway. When he pulled the truck over, he noticed that the man inside, Rodney Gibson, was visibly upset...but not about the traffic stop. Gibson said it was "something else."
Trooper Durnil wanted to find a way to get through to Gibson, when he noticed an angel pin on the sun visor. He said that he had the same one. Gibson told him that the pin was from his daughter. He had just found out that her breast cancer she'd had for six years had metastasized, and that she would likely not make it.
He decided to not issue Gibson a ticket or a warning, but instead, the man asked him to pray with him. So they knelt at the side of his semi truck and prayed together.
Gibson later called Trooper Durnil's post to thank him for his actions, and so did the truck company that he works for.
"I hope everyone that hears about this is one more person that can pray for him and his family."
