DRIVER EARNS HIGHWAY ANGEL WINGS FOR HELPING INJURED MOTORISTS UNTIL EMS ARRIVED
James Eslinger, of Knoxville, Tennessee, a professional truck driver for Frontier Transport of Greenfield, Indiana, has been named a Highway Angel by the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA). He is being recognized for assisting two drivers who had crashed.
At approximately 9 p.m. on December 16, 2016, Eslinger witnessed an accident involving two vehicles. He used his 18-wheeler to block traffic and performed CPR on two of the victims. One of the victims survived, though unfortunately the other did not. Eslinger stayed at the scene and assisted EMS through the night. This is Eslinger’s eighth lifesaving event in his role as a professional truck driver.
For his willingness to assist his fellow driver, TCA has presented Eslinger with a certificate, patch, lapel pin, and truck decals. Frontier Transport also received a certificate acknowledging James Eslinger as a Highway Angel.
TCA’s Highway Angel program is sponsored by EpicVue. Both organizations are honored to recognize deserving professional truck drivers as Highway Angels for the unusual kindness, courtesy, and courage they have shown others while on the job.
