A kind hearted truck driver risked his own safety in order to help a broken down motorcyclist on a busy American highway.
?Trucker helps stranded bikerWhen the trucker, who goes by the moniker Johnny Be Good, spotted the biker stranded in the middle lane of the motorway he knew he had to help.
In a video recorded on his dashcam, and later shared to his YouTube channel, he is seen slowing to a stop behind the woman, who is sat astride her stalled motorcycle.
His truck provides vital protection for the woman against the heavy stream of traffic.
Commenting on the situation, he says: "Somebody stalled their motorcycle, a little lady over here. I don't know if she ran out of gas."
Shouting to the biker “start walking it that way”, he begins inching to the left across the carriageway, allowing her to push her bike to the safety of the hard shoulder.
“Just wanted to give her a little cover,” he concludes before beginning to drive off. “ I guess that’s all I can do.”
His selfless action has not gone unnoticed, with over 500,000 people having viewed the video, and 3,084 ‘liking it’ since he shared it to YouTube in April.
After completing his university studies in English and Creative Writing in Cardiff, Jack is now a full time motoring writer at Blackball Media. His love of cars stems from his childhood years when he began to live and breathe all-things automotive.
