This is the moment a heroic lorry driver saved a driver’s life and avoided a pile-up on a main road. Russell Dagless, 53, has won a top award after he used his HGV to trap the driver’s van against a central reservation and gave him first aid after he saw him slump over the wheel.
The dashcam footage taken by another lorry driver shows the quick thinking father-of-one positioning his trailer in front of the van as it was bouncing along the safety barrier. An off-duty paramedic is then seen getting out of a car slowing behind Mr Dagless and join him to give the unconscious driver first aid on the two-lane road.
