A couple was traveling to Alabama with all of their belongings in a U-Haul behind their car. Not far into the trip the couple noticed that there was smoke coming from underneath the hood of their car. They quickly pulled off the road and evacuated the vehicle, making sure to bring their puppies with them as well.

Two truck drivers were driving on the same highway when they noticed the smoke. They didn’t hesitate when stopping to help the desperate couple. One of the drivers attempted to put out the flames coming from the vehicle and the other trucker offered the couple a seat in her truck. She provided water and blankets for the shocked couple.

Although, they were unable to save their vehicle or trailer with their belongings, the couple was grateful to the truckers for saving their lives. One of the truckers offered to take them with her to her next stop, where she purchased meals for the couple as well as clothing.
