Raiders quarterback Derek Carr committed yet another random act of kindness. This one occurred in Dublin on Tuesday, when he helped a man on the roadside whose car had run out of gas.
Bay Area music producer Ron Reeser told All22.com’s Bill Williamson about the encounter, Carr pulled up to his distressed vehicle and drove him to the gas station for fuel.
Reeser said he didn’t recognize Carr at first, but slowly got it out of the Pro Bowl quarterback after asking what he did for work.
“He said he was a quarterback; I thought he was a college quarterback,” Reeser told Williamson on Wednesday. “I asked him what string he was. He said ‘first string.’ I asked him his favorite team. He said, ‘I may be biased, but the Raiders because I play for them.’ I looked at him and said, ‘Wait’ … and I asked him his name. He said ‘Derek Carr.’
“He couldn’t have been more down to earth. He was wearing a hat and basketball shorts. I had no idea. He was just driving by and helped. It really made me feel good that there are good people still out there doing nice things for people.”
The pair prayed together after the interaction.
“It was such an empowering moment,” Reeser said. “It’s just not something I expected to happen after running out of gas. Some of the people I’ve told about it said maybe it was a sign to help me restore my faith in people doing the right thing.”
Reeser later reached out on social media and promised to pay the kindness forward.
God bless you too! Anytime!!!! But hopefully not on the side of the road again haha https://t.co/A3ntQoUHw2— Derek Carr (@derekcarrqb) March 15, 2017
