During a routine trip to our Lenexa Production facility for a product load, Barry Thayer, Heartland Topeka Transport Driver, drove up on a head-on collision involving two vehicles. Emergency services had not arrived, so Barry positioned his truck on the highway to stop the flow of traffic to keep other cars from the accident. He then used the fire extinguisher from his truck to start putting out the fire. Through his efforts, Barry was able to get one of the victims from their vehicle before flames engulfed it. In our eyes, Barry is a hero, but he sees himself as just an ordinary person doing what he hopes somebody else would do if his family were in the situation. We celebrate Barry for going the extra mile!
