Making A Difference: Richmond Firefighter Volunteers To Take Crash Victim's Groceries Home

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Ky. (LEX 18) - As if responding to a crash weren't enough, one first responder in Madison County decided to go above and beyond.

According to a post by KSP's Robert Purdy, he came upon the crash scene in Richmond. Richmond Fire and Richmond Police were responding.

"The light changed green, I went to get in the intersection and before I knew it, here was a car that hit me in the side," Benny Renfro told LEX 18. 

Renfro was not injured, just shaken up a bit. 

Renfro got into the crash on the way home from the grocery store. At the scene, he expressed concern that the groceries in his trunk were going to go bad.

He tried to call his wife unsuccessfully and at that point, Captain Brent Causey loaded Renfro's food into the trunk of his car to deliver them to Renfro's home. 

"I was so appreciative of it. They did a great job. I couldn't ask for a better job," said Renfro. 

Trooper Purdy pointed out that while he occasionally likes to poke fun at his friends, he had to give them props for the selfless action. 

Kudos to Richmond Fire and Richmond PD.
