Man Waits to Help Stranded Drivers

HARRISBURG, NC — More than a dozen roads were closed in Cabarrus County Wednesday night. We met a man who made it his personal mission to protect drivers at one creek crossing.

He didn’t want to give us his name, but was happy to show our camera the boat he had ready to rescue people who got stuck in the water by his home.

“You got crazy people try to go across the bridge and they lose their car or they lose their life,” he said. “You can close the road, but you can’t stop them from going through the closed road signs.”

Fortunately, when we talked to this man, no drivers had gotten stuck near his home.
