In January 2015, truck driver Kevin Kimmel stopped at a rest stop in New Kent, Virginia. As he sipped his cup of coffee, Kevin noticed something strange inside an RV parked nearby.
He caught a glimpse of a young woman through the window, sitting behind a dark-colored curtain. “An older RV, black curtains — in my world, that’s not natural,” he told WTVR.
The concerned trucker could tell by the look on her face that she was distraught… and possibly in danger.
Kevin followed his instincts and called the police. He ended up saving a young woman’s life that day. And the more he learned about the incident, the more he wanted to spread awareness.
“I’m just happy I helped her,” he said. “I’ve got daughters.”
According to FOX8, Kevin still drives a truck — but he also tours the country and speaks about his experiences at anti-trafficking events. Since he and his fellow truckers spend so much time in places through which victims pass, he speaks about warning signs and the importance of following the rule that if you see something, you should say something. After all, one phone call could save a life.
Kevin deserves all the praise he can get, so please SHARE this story with your friends on Facebook.
