Christian was just a few hours into his shift for United Towing when four women ran up to his truck and frantically began yelling for help. He jumped out of the truck to see what was happening and quickly realized the vehicle the women had just exited had bullet holes along the side. He also noticed that two of the women were bleeding and appeared to have been shot as well. Without hesitation, Christian loaded the women into the cab of his truck and drove them to a local hospital that was less than five minutes from the scene. Once at the hospital, Christian contacted the police about the incident and later gave a statement to help with the investigation.

When the women's family arrived at the hospital, they found Christian and thanked him for helping their loved ones in their greatest time of need. Abraham, the owner of United Towing, received a call later from the police department and recalls, "They wanted me to know that Christian's heroic actions saved the lives of two people that night."

Christian was a Real Hero of the Road to these women who were in a dire situation. Without his quick thinking and bravery, it's possible two of the women may not have survived. When you're driving along the highway and you see Christian, a tow provider like him, or other first responders working, think of this story and what his heroism meant to those women that night. And when you do, please slow down and move over so they can do their job safely. We need tow providers like Christian and so do our members; but most of all, so do their families. Help us keep them safe.
