Jefferson doctor, driver change course for Beau Biden

Dr. Robert Rosenwasser was heading to North Jersey for a meeting on Tuesday when he got a call from doctors at Christiana Hospital, in Delaware, where the state's Attorney General Beau Biden was being treated for a stroke. They wanted to transfer Biden to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where Rosenwasser is chief neurosurgeon, so the good doctor instructed his driver, Big Penny of Concord Limousine, to turn around and step on it.

A consummate professional, Big Penny drove the black Lincoln Town Car about 100 mph down the New Jersey Turnpike and got Rosenwasser to Jefferson in a flash while security cleared a back entrance for the arrival of Biden's father, Vice President Joe Biden. Beau Biden was still recovering over the weekend at Jefferson from the mild stroke and, according to the Wilmington News Journal, even making campaign calls from the hospital.
