Pothole Keeps Daughter From Saying Goodbye To Her Mother
Sure, we all hate potholes, It seems that so many have popped up around Rockford in the last few weeks. Some are pretty bad but there's a couple out there that will make you lose a tire. According to Fox17.com, a young woman named Victoria got a phone call about how sick her mother was so she hopped into the car and headed to Illinois coming from Georgia. Victoria's mother was a cancer survivor and she was also dealing with COPD. While on her trip she was driving up I-24 in Nashville and she hit a pothole near exit 31.
She had a feeling after she hit the pothole that she was going to get a flat. Sure enough, a few minutes later she had 2 flats and got stuck on the side of the road. Victoria's insurance company and nearby officers tried to find a rental car for her but came up empty-handed. Victoria waited for the repairs and slept in her car, but before she got back on the road, she received a call stating that her mother had passed away. Victoria said "I just wish I got to say goodbye to her. That's gonna hurt me forever".
