Journeyman Esteban Toledo might have some additional perspective on golf and life. This past week Toledo placed 21st in the Mexico Open, a Nationwide Tour event played in his homeland.
But it was the events of January 28 that Esteban can’t get out of his mind. Toledo was riding in a hired car on the Pomona Freeway in the Los Angeles area when the vehicle in front of him lost control, rolled and came to rest upside down in the fast lane.
The driver of Toledo’s car parked in front of the wrecked vehicle and the two men pulled two young women, sisters, from the wreckage and attended to them until paramedics arrived on the scene. One was bleeding and unable to speak. Both were released from the hospital the following day.
“I thought the car might explode,” the 45-year-old Toledo was quoted as saying.
“I have a family. I wasn’t sure what to do, but God spoke to me. I still have a hard time getting the images out of my mind, but I feel good about what I did. I know God put me there for a reason.”
