I was attacked while out on a run...

by ROAD iD Staff May 21, 2021

I installed the Road ID App and was ready to give it a test while out on a run. I listed my ex-fiancé, mom, and sister as my emergency contacts, and sent them an eCrumb so they could track me on the map while I was out. I also informed my ex-fiancé (a local on-duty police officer) that I would be running my “regular route” and how long I would be out.

A quarter of a mile from my car, I was attacked by a man. I struggled with him for about a minute before he threw me down an embankment. It took me a bit to get back to the road where I flagged down a passing biker who scared my attacker away.

During the commotion, the app sent a Stationary Alert to my ex and he called my phone, to which I screamed for him to meet me because I had been attacked. He was at my car by my side in no time. I am so thankful for the Road ID App. It's an amazing service, and I tell all my friends about it.

Thank you!
