Truck Driver Saves Small Boy Alongside Highway

A truck driver from Bay City was honored with a special recognition from the Truckload Carriers Association.

Dallas Steiger, driver for Ludington based Quick-Way, Inc., was driving a load north on US-131 in Mason County’s Sherman Township on August 31 when he saw a two-year-old boy near traffic along the south bound side of the busy highway. The boy had wandered up the driveway from his home.

Steiger pulled his truck over, ran across traffic and moved the child back up the driveway. The boy’s mother called to Quick-Way to share her gratitude for Steiger’s actions.

Steiger received the Highway Angel award, honoring exemplary kindness, courtesy and courage from truck drivers on the job.
