IRU crew helps road user avoid missing flight

A couple of months ago Modderfontein Incident Response Unit(IRU) and the Towing Response Unit(TRU), were dispatched to the R24 East between Edenvale and Barbara Road off ramp for a stationary vehicle blocking the left hand emergency and slow lane, upon arrival, scene safety was done. While waiting on the TRU another vehicle broke down just behind the scene.

Luckily the IRU crew consisting of Owen, Maweso, Cynthia and Innocent managed to attend to both vehicle’s.

It turned out to be an elderly gentleman who’s car had a flat wheel, and he was rushing to the airport to catch a flight. Upon assessing the situation Owen took the initiative and changed the flat wheel in order to get the Gentleman on his way again. A couple of days later, the gentleman’s wife contacted the team to extend her gratitude to the guys for helping her husband.
