Fortunately, a good samaritan named Dave Cochran stopped to help.
"(I) just pulled over," Cochran, who lives in his truck with his girlfriend and their dog, told Steven Dial of KSHB-TV. "I went to help him, then he told me he was a Chiefs player. I didn't know he was a Chiefs player. I looked at him as a normal person and hoped he would do the same for me like I did for him."
Allen took to Twitter on Sunday asking for help finding Cochran so he could offer him tickets to the AFC Championship Game. It didn't take long for Allen to track him down.
This will be the first Chiefs game Cochran has ever attended.
"It's like a dream come true," he said. "I saw the message this morning, and I am not going to fake with you, call me soft if you want to homeboys, I started bawling to know he is a man of his word and he reached out to contact me."
