    Default Canadian trucker named as Truck Hero

    A trucker from St. Paul, Alberta, Canada, received the 2006 Bridgestone Firestone Canadian Truck Hero Award on Thursday, Nov. 16, for his bravery in saving a fellow trucker.

    According to Today’s Trucking, Shawn Berube was using a phone booth on the shore of Lake Superior when he smelled smoke. At first, he said he thought it was chimney smoke from a restaurant – but then saw that the thick smoke was coming from the cab of a truck.

    Berube pulled the disoriented driver out just moments before the tractor became engulfed in flames.

    The winner of the award receives:

    A $3,000 check from Bridgestone Firestone Canada;
    A trip for two to Toronto for two nights with hotel, airfare, ground transportation and meals included, for the award presentation;
    A Canadian Truck Hero Award trophy; and
    Recognition at the annual Ontario Trucking Association Convention in Toronto.

    Truckstop Canada is proud of this fellow trucker
