A police officer in Bixby, Oklahoma, recently came to the rescue of two high school seniors who got in a car accident on prom night and were stranded.
Police said Alexis Norman and Mackenzye Pruitt were on their way to attend their senior prom on April 15 when a woman attempted to pass them in a no-passing lane and crashed into them.
Fortunately, the girls were not injured, but it seemed as if they would be unable to attend prom. However, some strangers and a police officer made sure the night wasn’t a complete bust.
Pruitt recounted the moments following the accident.
“We kind of both just sat there in shock and sat there in silence, for probably 20 or 30 seconds,” she said.
Thankfully, a couple of strangers stopped to help the girls out.
“They were really like our guardian angels. They were able to be there when our parents weren’t able to be there and they stayed with us the whole time,” Pruitt stated.
The Bixby Police Department soon arrived at the scene of the accident, and Officer Smith offered to take the girls to prom after realizing they were on their way there.
Pruitt expressed gratitude for the officer’s kind gesture.
“She offered to take us to prom when she realized we were on our way.”
Not only did they make it to prom, but they also got a ride-along with the police.
Thanks to Officer Smith’s assistance, the girls were able to enjoy an hour with their friends on the special night. Norman expressed appreciation for the strangers and Officer Smith’s help.
“They just really helped to be there and make us feel at ease. So, I would just say thank you so much for doing that for us,” she said.
