A Flaming Truck And A Hero
Gerry Bisaillon was driving in his truck when an accident left him unconscious. As his truck caught on fire, Bisaillon, who suffered a concussion from the accident, was pulled from the vehicle by a Good Samaritan. By the time the volunteer fire rescue arrived, the unknown hero had vanished. Bisaillon knew that rescue vehicles were equipped with camera equipment and he soon discovered that it was a Dart Transit employee who saved his life. Through his job in intermodal shipping for Union Pacific, he was able to contact Dart. Officials there soon revealed that employee Brandon Walker was the unnamed hero. Walker didn’t want recognition for his heroic actions but the men connected and Walker was named a Highway Angel by the Truckload Carriers Association.
