NORWICH, CT – When AAA doesn’t show up, you can count on police to lend a helping hand in most situations. In Norwich, a Connecticut State Trooper was there, like a good neighbor for an elderly couple involved in a crash.

Police reported the following:

On May 26, 2022, at approximately 11:00 a.m., Troop E Troopers responded to a minor two car accident on I-395 near Exit 13 in the City of Norwich.

As Troopers conversed with the parties, it was determined an elderly couple was on their way to attend a graduation at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.

Trooper Trainee Barnes, a recent graduate of the 131st Training Troop, ensured the couple would be on their way in a matter of minutes. Trooper Trainee Barnes was able to locate a spare tire and complete a tire change on their vehicle, as he did not want them to miss the graduation ceremony.
