J.B. Hunt Driver Witnesses Accident and Saves Life

Sep 21 2017

On Saturday, September 2, 2017, Intermodal driver Brian was traveling to one of his regular customers when he witnessed a single vehicle accident. The vehicle had crossed the highway and run into a light pole on the shoulder.

Brian quickly sprang into action and pulled over to help the driver. The vehicle was badly damaged; it was leaking fuel and smoking. Thinking fast, Brian used a sledge hammer stored in his truck to break the window of the damaged vehicle while on the phone with a 911 emergency dispatcher. Moments before the vehicle erupted into flames, he was able to pull the driver out.

After getting the young woman a safe distance away from the wreck, Brian noticed that she had no pulse. Without hesitation, he began performing CPR while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. Soon, the young woman regained her pulse and began to breathe again. Brian had saved her life.

Since the accident, Brian has gone above and beyond by visiting the young woman in the hospital several times and calling her mother daily to check in.

Thank you, Brian, for being an outstanding representative of J.B. Hunt. You’re a real hero!
