Full Release from ATA and Bridgestone - 16/6/20

In June 2019, Frasers Livestock Transport driver Jeff Clegg was conducting a welfare check of his truck’s load outside of Woodenbong, NSW, when he saw an unusual glow in the distance. On investigation, Mr Clegg came across a 4x4 in dense vegetation with the driver trapped inside. 

After alerting emergency services, Mr Clegg remained with the driver and comforted him, before assisting emergency responders once they arrived. Given the remoteness of the incident and condition of the driver, Mr Clegg’s intervention is being praised as having saved the motorist’s life.
