TWU (Vic/Tas) member Andrew Hastings has received the Bridgestone Bandag Highway Guardian accolade for his “actions and compassion” after being first on the scene at a multi-vehicle smash on Victoria’s Western Freeway.
Andrew, who works for Linfox, doused the flames in one vehicle with his on-board fire extinguisher before assisting an injured woman from the car.
He then moved to another vehicle and aided a severely injured driver and provided first aid to the driver’s wounds until paramedics arrived.
Andrew then prised open the passenger door and sat with the driver while he received treatment.
Congratulations Andrew on a selfless and brave act.
