The Australian Trucking Association and Bridgestone award Frasers Livestock driver a Bridgestone Bandag Highway Guardian Award.
The Bridgestone Bandag Highway Guardian not only helps shine light on the excellent people in the transport and logistics industry, it helps us tell people outside the industry about these great stories.
Driver Jeff Clegg was conducting a welfare check of his load outside of Woodenbong, NSW when he saw an unusual glow in the distance. On investigation, Mr Clegg came across a 4×4 in dense vegetation with the driver trapped inside.
After alerting emergency services, Mr Clegg remained with the driver and comforted him, and then assisted emergency responders once they arrived. Given the remoteness of the incident and condition of the driver, Mr Clegg’s intervention is being praised as saving the motorist’s life.
Jeff Clegg is another unsung hero from the Australian trucking industry who has gone out of his way to assist someone in need.
“Congratulations Jeff on being named a Bridgestone Bandag Highway Guardian, and thank you for your quick thinking and selfless approach.”
