Canadian named 35th Highway Hero
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- What does one say after saving one life and preventing severe injury to another? "I'm just happy I was in the right place at the right time," said Frank Vieira of Ancaster, Ont. -- the 35th Goodyear Highway Hero. Vieira was driving over a bridge on a rural highway near Toronto when he heard a loud crash, looked over his shoulder and noticed that a car on the other side of the road had slammed into the back of a stationary roll-off truck. The force of the impact threw the driver forcefully against the steering wheel. The steering wheel broke, with a piece of it embedding itself in the driver's neck.
