Oak Hill Firemen Help Clear Traffic in Georgia

Savannah, GA– Many people in the south don’t quite know how to drive in all of this snow they are experiencing, but luckily for them some local men were there to help on Wednesday.

Two Oak Hill Volunteer Firemen, Rodeny Woodson and Trent Rust were on their way to Florida for a cruise when they ran into some heavy traffic near the Savannah bridge in Georgia. After only moving 14 miles in 6 hours, Woodson decided to see what the problem was. He found that several tractor trailers had jack-knifed on the bridge, so Rust brought the truck and the two began towing the trucks out of the way. They moved a total of 5 tractor trailers and one pick up truck with a trailer and completely cleared Interstate 95.

Woodson says he was just doing what he was raised to do.

“My dad always taught me that always help people in need,” Woodson said. “There wasn’t anyone else helping them and I know we probably could. Plus I thought it would be fun. We were just doing what we do, having fun and helping people out.”

Woodson says they did not run into any more traffic on their way to Florida. We hope they enjoy their well-earned vacation.
