Wis. Woman Offered $1 Car After Hers Is Vandalized

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A Sheboygan woman whose car was totaled after vandals flipped it over says her nightmare turned into a dream when a local car dealer offered her a replacement for $1.

Cristina Earls is a 40-year-old single mother of four. She also has lung disease and leukemia, which is in remission.

She says she was devastated after her car was vandalized this week, since she had just drained her cash getting it fixed. But she says her faith was restored when several kind people stepped forward.

First, she says two anonymous “angels” handed her an envelope with $150 in cash.

Then the Sheboygan County Budget Auto in Plymouth offered her a $1 car.

Dealership manager Tina Murphy tells The Sheboygan Press the employees heard what happened and wanted to help.
