Highway Hero recounts rescue under burning fuel tanker
When he came upon another trucker who had fallen from his truck that was hanging over the side of a freeway overpass, Ivan Vasovic sprang into action.
What transpired was “really like Hollywood movies,” Vasovic recalled after accepting the 31stGoodyear North America Highway Hero Award during the Mid-America Trucking Show.
Vasovic tells his full story in this illustrated video, which includes the announcement of his honor during the show.
Vasovic received $5,000, a trophy and a ring from Goodyear. The three other finalists for the honor, Tim Horton, Brian Dunn and Scott Rosenberg, received $2,500 each.
