A Good Samaritan was rewarded with a trip to the hospital after intervening in a fender bender Friday.
Rev. Ron Moock of the Cummins Theological Seminary said Monday he was mostly feeling better; he was even able to preach Sunday. Moock said he was in one of the drive-through lanes at the First Federal Bank on North Main Street when he saw the woman in the lane next to him inch forward and hit the car in front of her. When the two drivers began arguing, with the woman in the rear car saying she hadn’t hit the woman in the front car, he got out and offered to be a witness for the driver in the front car, he said.
At that point, he said, the woman in the rear car started trying to back out of the drive-through. Moock said he tried to convince her to stay until the police arrived, but she insisted she had to leave. As she was pulling out she knocked him to the ground and he hit his head, he said.
Moock said the car was a white four-door model. Summerville Police said witnesses thought it might be a Ford Fusion. Moock was transported to the hospital by EMS but was released the same day.
