Hero stories come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it involves guns and sometimes it doesn’t. The story of Kevin Kimmel is one that doesn’t involve guns, but does involve taking notice of your surroundings and acting quickly. As a result, he probably saved a young woman’s life.
Kimmel was parked at a truck stop in New Kent County, Virginia. Noticing a suspicious looking recreational vehicle with black curtains nearby, he caught a glimpse of a young woman’s face looking out, as someone else shutting the curtains.
“Saw what looked like a young girl looking out the window, the black drapes didn’t make it look like a families’ RV, you know,” Kimmel said. “I saw a guy come up and knock on the door then go inside the Pilot–then quickly came back and knocked again, all of the sudden the thing was rocking and rolling.”
“When I saw the young girl’s face, I said that’s not going to happen, I’ve got daughters and granddaughters,” Kimmel said.
