Remembering Glen “The Security Guard” Ewing

Spread the love
UPDATE: Here is the Go Fund Me for Glenn’s family:

We are incredibly sad to report that Glen “The Security Gard” Ewing lost his life on the job while trying to help a stranded motorist in his work for AAA. 

Our prayers and positive thoughts are with his family during this incredibly difficult time. 

Now we take a look back at a conversation we had with this great storyteller and truly authentic and kind human being, Glen Ewing. Rest in peace friend. 

This is what AAA reported on their Facebook Page:
“We are deeply saddened by the death of one of our drivers. 32-year old Glenn Ewing was placing a AAA member’s vehicle on the back of a tow truck on Sunday night when he was hit by a motorist’s vehicle.  He died last night at The University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

“Our hearts go out to Glenn’s loved ones and AAA colleagues during this very difficult time.  We will be forever grateful to Glenn and all first responders who have given their lives while helping others,” said John Poholsky, Vice-President, Fleet Operations, AAA Club Alliance.
Ewing joined the AAA Club Alliance Cincinnati Fleet in 2019 and was quickly known as a hero. In July of last year, he witnessed a shooting while assisting a AAA member and quickly rendered first aid to the victim by applying his belt as a tourniquet until medical personnel arrived. 
Ewing’s death illustrates why Slow Down, Move Over laws are critical to safety. The best thing drivers can do to keep someone on the side of the road safe is slow down, and move over into the next lane if you can do so safely.    
 “Whether someone is fixing a tire or working on a tow, move away and change lanes to create safe space around them. Their lives are on your shoulders,” Poholsky added.
The Cincinnati Police is continuing the investigation into this incident. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit at (513) 352-2514.”
