'The Cleaning Lady' star Oliver Hudson reveals how he was left stranded in New Mexico until DOT angel arrived
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO: ‘The Cleaning Lady’ star Oliver Hudson couldn’t stop praising New Mexico’s Department of Transport for helping him when he needed it the most. Hudson, who portrays the role of FBI agent Garrett Miller in the FOX series ‘The Cleaning Lady’, found himself in an awkward position when he got to know that his car was out of gas while making his way to the set of the aforementioned TV show.
However, it seems Hudson had luck on his side. The actor went on to share his experience of getting help from New Mexico’s Department of Transport while shooting his new TV show in the state. While appearing on the CBS show ‘The Talk’, Hudson revealed that “interesting things happened” when he got out of his car on the freeway. He noted that a guy in a uniform got to his car, filled gas in the car, and left without even asking for money.
“I run out of gas on the freeway, over on the shoulder but then an interesting thing happened. I ran out of gas [asks the driver] who are you? He goes, “one second’, [and] puts gas in my car and leaves,” Hudson said during the discussion (via KRQE).
Later, it was revealed that the giant Yellow trucks running around Albuquerque are actually a part of New Mexico’s Department of Transport’s Courtesy Patrol program that helps the drivers in need on the stretches of I-25 and I-40 in the metro. The DOT’s official website states that the program’s primary function is to provide an “efficient response to clear or remove highway incidents that impede traffic flow along the interstate and expressway systems.”
The report from KRQE also indicated that the courtesy patrol program is able to help “80-300 motorists” in a week.
Hudson will be seen reprising his role of Garrett Miller in ‘The Cleaning Lady’ Season 2 which is set to air on FOX on September 19. In Season 1, Miller was after Thony in his effort to bring down Arman, but in Season 2, Thony would be looking for Miller’s help to find her son who has been taken away by his father Marco.
