Cyclist Saves Injured Driver From Burning Truck

This was a news story on TV last night… a man drove his van over the edge of the Scarborough Bluffs (uncertain whether it was intentional or accidental, yet), and a passing cyclist noticed the smoke from the burning vehicle.

Getting of his bike, Lionel Juan found the driver under a bush about 5 feet away from the burning vehicle and attempted to get him to safety, concerned the van may blow up. It was later discovered that there were acetylene (which welders use) tanks in the van.

This is a great story about a cyclist concerned about the safety of others, and there is even video on the CityNews website of the cyclist talking about the situation.

I’m glad I watched the video, because the cyclist is the same guy I chatted with waiting out the thunderstorm at the gas station at Dundas and Church streets a few weeks ago.

Way to go, Lionel!
