Goodyear Names Highway Hero at Mid America Trucking Show

(Akron/Tire Review) Last night, at the Mid America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. presented Ashford, Ala., truck driver Douglas Crawford with the 23rd Goodyear North America Highway Hero Award.


Crawford, who drives for Saia Motor Freight Lines Inc., saved the life of fellow truck driver Herman Langford of Leesburg, Ga. When a hit-and-run driver allegedly rear-ended a Roadway truck, the driver lost control and collided with Langford’s truck. Both tractors burst into flames, and Crawford pulled over to help.


Crawford sprayed his extinguisher on the flames and found Langford conscious but unable to move. He pulled the injured driver from the burning truck and placed him in a safe area in the ditch. Moments later, the tractor exploded.

Goodyear presented Crawford with a $10,000 U.S. Savings Bond and a Highway Hero ring.
