Conway trucker named a Highway Angel for his part in keeping accident victim alive


Conway truck driver Robert Woolf is named a Highway Angel by the Truckload Carriers Association for helping save a life.

In November after witnessing an accident Woolf pulled over and called 911.  He then crawled into the crashed car and kept the unconscious drivers airway open until emergency crews arrived.

At a ceremony on Friday he was given his angel wings.

"Your conscience tells you 'you've got to do something, you can't drive by something like that and you wouldn't be able to live with yourself,'" says Woolf.

Woolf has worked for Conway for two years and has racked up around 120,000 miles on the road.

He is the first Conway driver to receive the award since 1999.
