Kevin Durant is beloved in the community in Oklahoma City. He’s been a staple there for the past eight seasons, doing lots of charity work and assisting with the tornado relief efforts in 2013. Here’s another neat story that shines light on who he is as a person — apparently, he helped to clear out traffic for an ambulance while driving around town in his Ferrari.

From News9 in Oklahoma City:

EMSA paramedics trying to get through rush hour traffic were in for quite the surprise after a famous driver helped them get to not only one but two emergencies on time.

They say that thoughtful driver was Kevin Durant.

“We were stuck in traffic, so pretty much cars surrounding us all over,” EMSA paramedic Peter Radford said. “All of a sudden, I see a silver Ferrari or a silver sports car pull in behind us.”

Before Radford knew it, the lanes of traffic started clearing.

“I see this Ferrari has it’s flashers on,” he said. “It’s actually making way for us to get through and navigate all the traffic.”

This is a cool story that shows who Durant is and what he means to the community in Oklahoma City.
