The Australian Trucking Association and Bridgestone award Shoobridge Transport 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.
Shoobridge Transport’s John Lee assisted at a major crash site in January 2018, coming to the aid of the trapped driver of an overturned truck that was leaking fuel and engulfed in flames.
After being rescued through the windscreen of the truck by Mr Lee, the driver made a full recovery from minor injuries.
Following the incident, the driver’s wife set out on a quest to locate her husband’s hero and turned to social media to ensure he received the deserved recognition.
John Lee is another unsung hero from the Australian trucking industry who has gone out of his way to assist someone in need.
“Congratulations John Lee on being named the latest Bridgestone Bandag Highway Guardian and thank you for your selfless actions in saving a fellow industry member.”
