In the above video, Jason Harte of Sammons Trucking tells in his own words how he responded when he came upon a family in a wrecked minivan.

For his prompt action in rescuing children in the van before emergency help arrived, Harte was recognized as a Truckload Carriers Association Highway Angel. He was also named a Knight of the Road in the January Overdrive. 

Here are the comic panels drawn by Don Lomax for the January issue of Overdrive, along with a photo from the incident and a photo of Harte:

Never Compromise. Cummins 2017 Heavy-Duty Engines.

Notice: Overdrive is transitioning to a new comment platform due to technical problems with the former commenting system. The new commenting system is now live. We are currently in the process of moving all of the comments from the old system into the new system. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.
