David Miller, of Palatka, Florida, a professional truck driver for Celadon Trucking of Indianapolis, has been named a Highway Angel by the Truckload Carriers Association. He is being recognized for performing CPR on an unresponsive driver.
On Jan. 25, Miller was at a Pilot Travel Center in Kingston Springs, Tennessee, when he saw a man fall to the floor, unresponsive. He quickly raced over and performed a sternum rub to see if the man would respond. After receiving no response, Miller began performing CPR until emergency medical services arrived, helping to save the man’s life.
For his willingness to assist his fellow driver, TCA presented Miller with a certificate, patches, a lapel pin, and truck decals. Celadon Trucking also received a certificate acknowledging Miller as a Highway Angel.
EpicVue sponsors TCA’s Highway Angel program. Since the program’s inception in Aug. 1997, hundreds of drivers have been recognized as Highway Angels for the exemplary kindness, courtesy, and courage they have displayed while on the job.
