Suddenly, he saw a young man named Mike walking in sneakers and wrapped in a light jacket.

As he drove past snow drifts several feet tall, Withey said, his truck became stuck twice.

The first time, he was able to shovel his way out, but the second time felt hopeless.

With his clothes soaking wet and only a quarter of a tank of fuel left, Withey started to grow concerned.

Police Chief Brian Gould told CNN that Withey was in a section of town that they were having a hard time getting to.

Former President Donald Trump, who threw his nightmarish red cap back into the ring and launched a fourth bid for the White House last month, shared an article on Wednesday that suggested he run as a third-party candidate.
