Truckload Carriers Association Recognizes a Georgia Trucker for His Acts of Heroism


August 30, 2021

TENNESSEE - A news report posted on TRUCKERSNEWS.COM states that a truck driver who stopped to assist a father and son who were harmed in a serious rollover accident is being recognized by the national trucking organization- The Truckload Carriers Association.   The Truckload Carriers Association recently named a truck driver from Carrollton, Georgia, a Highway Angel for stopping his truck and then rendering aid to victims in an accident in Pennsylvania.  

According to the report, a truck driver was heading westbound along Interstate 78 by Saucon, Pennsylvania.  The mid-afternoon accident occurred in heavy traffic.  The award recipient was driving in the righthand lane when a sedan and SUV began to pass the truck on his left side.  The car began to fishtail, veered, and then hit the side of the SUV.  The SUV then began to spin and roll over across the highway. The SUV then came to rest on the side of the driver and then struck a concrete barrier.  The truck driver stopped, pulled over, and ran across several traffic lanes to render aid. 

The truck driver pulled out a boy first from the vehicle.  He cut away the driver's seat belt using his Swiss Army knife.  He and another motorist pulled the driver out and helped the man to the ground.  The truck driver waited with the injured driver and passenger until emergency first responders arrived and took over.   

For the driver's willingness to assist those in need, the Truckload Carriers Association presented him with a patch, certificate, truck decals, and a lapel pin.  The driver's employer also received a certificate recognizing their truck driver as a Highway Angel.
