Davita Peele was one of those good Samaritans.

At one point in the video you see the door open in this white car directly in front of Peele.. she said two kids were about to get out.

“They’re nervous and scared and I’m like, just close your door,” Peele said.

After directing them to stay put … she directed traffic.

“I got out of my car because people started to blow through the light change and people didn’t see what was going on so I’m like ok just go around don’t go this way, go that way,” she said.

Peele is wearing her uniform in the video, after a long day of delivering mail for the US Postal Service.

“I had just got off of work so I was like, let me stop at Home Depot because usually, I would’ve been in that straight lane going home,” she said.

It turns out a last-minute decision turned her into a good Samaritan.

“I helped someone avoid getting into an even worse accident,” she said.
