DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - There was no shortage of driver stalls and spin-outs on North Texas roads Thursday but the good news is there was plenty of helping hands around the region.

At Loop 12 and Keeneland Parkway, ice got the upper hand on an 18-wheeler.  But instead of waiting hours for a wrecker, the driver got help in the form of strangers.

Folks in Jeeps and really big trucks banded together to give the driver a pull.  Chopper 11 was overhead at the time.  CBS 11 caught up with the good Samaritans and found out they were just having fun.

After the rescue, they hit the road again looking for other drivers who might be in trouble.
