Samaritan Trucker Saves Motorist

By: Tom Kelley

highway angelThe results could have been catastrophic when a motorist suffered a medical emergency while driving in Arlington, Washington earlier this year. Fortunately, truck driver Robert Tyler spotted the situation and intervened. When he came upon a vehicle blocking traffic, Tyler found the motorist unconscious with his car in drive and foot on the brake.

Using his truck to block the car from moving if the driver’s foot came off the brake, Tyler then gained access to the locked car, rendered it safe and got the motorist out of the car. A nurse on the scene then administered CPR until paramedics arrived.

The Truckload Carriers Association recently recognized Tyler as a Highway Angel for his heroism.
