Golden Tate stops on Detroit freeway to assist at scene of accident

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate played the role of Good Samaritan on Tuesday morning by stopping on the side of a Detroit freeway to assist at the scene of an accident involving a young child.

Among the first to report on Tate’s involvement at the accident scene was Lions senior writer and insider Tim Twentyman.

Tate later took to Twitter to confirm his role at the accident scene, adding one of those impacted was a three-year-old girl. The Lions wide receiver also indicated that thankfully everyone involved was okay.

Tate, while performing good works off the field, is also enjoying a solid start to the season on it. The 30-year-old veteran is leading the Lions receiving corps with 28 receptions for 389 yards and three touchdowns. But odds are Tate is just as proud of what he did to assist people in need on Tuesday morning, especially that little girl.
