Illinois Woman Shocked By Officer Who Pulls Her Over

Gina Headen is an Illinois woman who was pulled over for speeding and given a warning. She was then surprised by his act of kindness just days after her father's death. Headen said, “I'm so blessed he was the one who pulled me over that day."

In a Facebook post she wrote, “While I sat and waited I was reminiscing about my dad like always lately. The officer returned to my car and said its your lucky day, we were born on the same day and year, slow down and have a good day. I smiled and said thank you. He walked away and I broke down and started crying.”

She continued, “Thinking he was back in his car. He surprised me and tapped on my window asking if I was ok. I told him I was sad, I just lost my dad. He said take a minute and breath. He talked to me a minute then helped me back into traffic.”

A few days later, she received a card in the mail from the officer. Her story has since been shared over 26,000 times.

Headen told KMOV, “I just thought people need to know good police officers out there who care for their community." Hill told KMOV, “We are not just here to send people to jail [and to] write tickets. We help when we can."
