A Texas state trooper helps out an elderly woman whose tires need to be replaced but she can’t afford it.

An elderly woman in Texas sought to leave the repair shop after being defeated by the expense of a new set of tires for her automobile when only one was damaged. She was unaware that a state trooper overheard her uncomfortable talk with the mechanic.

When Mary Summers, a 92-year-old woman from Texas, slid her car over a nail, one of her tires became punctured. When the elderly woman brought her car to Integrity Tires in Richmond, Texas, to have the tire patched, she was informed that the repairs were more expensive than she could afford.

The attending mechanic, Omar Oregueda, sat with Mary and explained that her car was dangerous because all four tires were critically worn. She had no other option except to change the bandages, which would have cost her $600.
