Alexandria, Virginia:
James Eslinger, of Knoxville, Tennessee, a professional truck driver for Frontier Transport of Greenfield, Indiana, has been named a Highway Angel by the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA). He is being recognized for assisting two drivers who had crashed.
At approximately 9 p.m. on December 16, 2016, Eslinger witnessed an accident involving two vehicles. He used his 18-wheeler to block traffic and performed CPR on two of the victims. One of the victims survived, though unfortunately the other did not. Eslinger stayed at the scene and assisted EMS through the night.
