An Uber driver is being praised for going above and beyond to ensure his teenage passenger gets home safe.
DaVante Williams of Washington, D.C., was among the hundreds of people stuck for hours this week along a portion of Interstate 95 in Virginia due to heavy snowfall.
Click on the video below to hear Williams talk about his story with NewsNation Now.
After the teen reunited with her parents, the family reached out to him to express their gratitude.
Uber caught wind of Williams’ story, and they gave him a shoutout on Twitter. They wrote: “Not all heroes wear capes thank you, Davante!”
A representative from the company later called Williams to praise him for his actions. They also asked for a receipt of the hotel room to reimburse him.
