Good Samaritan donates money, food to crash and grab victim
On top of a broken nose, fractured ribs and cuts and bruises from her wreck, Shannon Slocum says she was robbed of her rent money.
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
A good Samaritan has stepped up and donated money and food to the victim of Monday's crash and grab incident in Bossier City.
While Shannon Slocum was still pinned upside down in her car after a wreck on Monday, witnesses told police they saw someone grab cash that had flown out of her car.
Shannon says she had about $200 with her that day, and she was headed to pay her rent when it happened.
We shared Shannon's story on Wednesday, and on Thursday afternoon, an anonymous donor stopped by KSLA News 12 with $100 in hand. She says she wants Shannon to know that someone out there does care. "Life's hard right now and people are struggling, and to hear her story, you know she is without a car right now. I don't have much but I don't mind sharing what I've got."
We passed the anonymous donor's gift of a bag of groceries and $100.00 on to Shannon later that day. She was so grateful for the stranger's kindness. "I feel joyful on the inside. I want to cry. Makes some of the lost, feel a little bit better, you know.
There's good people in the world," said Slocum. She says she will be using the money for this month's rent.
