Deputies Help Stranded Motorist on Angeles Crest Highway

Deputies from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station on Tuesday assisted a stranded motorist on Angeles Crest Highway who was out of food and water and had been reported missing by a family member.
The family member, who lives out of state, said that she had not heard from her relative for more than a week and that the man was visiting the Angeles Crest Highway area. A deputy remembered seeing the described vehicle on the road just north of La Cañada Flintridge, so the deputy and a reserve deputy began looking for the man.
The deputies found the man and learned that the battery terminal on his car was broken, he was out of food and water, and he was nearly out of gas. Because the vehicle’s battery was not working, he was unable to charge his phone and call his relatives.
The deputies took it upon themselves to help the motorist. They drove to an auto parts store and bought the battery terminal he needed. Then the deputies went to a sandwich shop and bought a meal and a case of water. While they were driving to the stores, they charged his phone.
The deputies went back to the man’s car and helped install the battery terminal. With the car started up and a fresh meal, they gave him a little gas money to help get around. The man and his family were appreciative of the help the deputies provided.
