A truck driver in Canada has lost his life after he chose to protect his colleague from injury. The man, a truck driver in Abbotsford and father of two, was on a median with his co-worker when an SUV swerved off of the roadway and crashed into him.

The man decided to make a valiant effort to save his colleague's life, and he stepped in front of the man as the erratic car approached. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident by emergency responders.

Fellow truckers said that the man was always considered to be generous, and that they are labeling him as a hero for what he did. A trust fund has been set up in his name, and is intended to help his widow, and two children.
