To the editor:
I am remiss in not noting the deputy’s name and badge number, but he was directing traffic Jan. 24 on U.S. 17 outside St. Brendan the Navigator Roman Catholic Church in Shallotte.
As I pulled into the turn lane, I ran over debris that caused a tire to blow out. This deputy immediately came to my aid by finding and identifying the metal debris. He then directed me to place my car on the median in order to clear traffic flow and to keep my car safe.
