The 18-wheel truck was a gift of uncommon generosity, given to a man of uncommon bravery.
Jorge Orozco-Sanchez went into a burning SUV, not once but twice, to pull two little girls from a fiery wreckage. The fire also destroyed his tractor trailer rig – the source of his only income. After months of struggling to make ends meet after the accident, the Independant Truckers Association and Goodyear stepped in to help Jorge replace his truck.
“We haven’t done this for any highway hero in the past, and we don’t want future ones to expect it,” said Tim Miller. Goodyear’s marketing and communication manager. So why do it now? “Well, have you met Jorge?” Miller asked.
