A state trooper helped an Edgecombe County man propose to his girlfriend last Friday night.
Dillon Parker proposed to Courtney Mitchell in Tarboro after the pair were pulled over by a state trooper on Highway 33.
The trooper, a family friend of Parker's, pulled Mitchell, citing a report that a red Mustang had run another car off the road. But that was just the setup to ask Parker to step out of the vehicle and assume the position so he could propose to his girlfriend on bended knee.
Family members said the surprise proposal and video shows there's still love and happiness in the world. It also shows the kindness of the NC Highway Patrol trooper.
Authorities are expected to release the results of autopsies on the two bodies recovered from the fiery crash that killed "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker and his friend.
"Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was killed by injuries from both the impact and subsequent fire when the Porsche his friend was driving smashed into a light pole and tree, according to an autopsy released Wednesday.
