Why Jesse’s our hero…
Jesse is one of our fabulous drivers here at Edge Transport. Having started with us young as a Class 2 driver, Jesse worked his way up to become a Class 1 Driver. He’s only 21 and well above his years. He’s also hardworking, kind-hearted and family orientated – it’s clear to see how much he cares.
Jesse was travelling southbound on the motorway between junction 19 for Knutsford and 18 for Middlewich when he saw a car lose control in the distance during heavy downpours. Jesse gestured for other motorists to slow down before moving across all four lanes of traffic to form a barrier between the car which aquaplaned into oncoming traffic. North Wales Motorway Police dubbed Jesse a hero across social media. The dashcam footage was phenomenal and he prevented what could have been a horrific motorway accident.
A hero to us and many others, we bought him a HGV Hero hi-vis jacket. He’s humble yet a team player and reluctantly posed for a picture. He’s taken it all in his stride, yet his actions represent being a true #RHAHero!
We feel he should have the recognition he deserves.
