Kind-Hearted Trucker Tows Family To Gas Station And Pays For Gas

A kind-hearted trucker saved a stranded family by pulling over and towing them to the nearest gas station before paying for their gas and secretly writing ‘Pay It Forward’ on the receipt. The Amun family had to pull over on the side of the I-24 outside Chattanooga, Tennessee, on March 9 because dad David, 39, had forgotten to fill up the tank. Stranded, David and his five sons - Jonathan, 18, Jalen, 16, Jordan, 16, Justin, 14, and Joshua, 12 - tried to push the car over the hill they were on, hoping they could then coast to a gas station. While they were doing so - and with David’s daughter, Brianna, 20, filming - a long-haul truck suddenly pulled up in front of them. Out of the truck came a driver who identified himself as Kevin, who asked if they needed a tow before grabbing a chain to attach the Amun vehicle to the back of his. Kevin towed the family to the nearest gas station, where he helped fill up their tank and even paid for their gas, simply writing ‘Pay It Forward’ on the receipt. Brianna recorded small snippets of the family’s journey that day, and before Kevin honked his horn and headed off, he asked the Anum’s to text him when they reached their destination. The family, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, are now planning to have a meal with Kevin at some point in the summer and thank him again for his kind gesture.
