Jumping out of his truck to check on the motorcyclist, Mr. Moody found him to be badly injured, Goodyear said. He used his shirt to wrap the man's head and calmed other bystanders as they waited for paramedics.
Mr. Moody was later credited with saving the man's life.
While driving near Toronto, Mr. Vieira heard a loud crash and looked over his shoulder to see that a car had collided with the back of a stationary roll-off truck. Mr. Vieira parked his truck and ran to the car to see if he could help.
According to Goodyear's account, the driver of the car had his neck pierced by a piece of his vehicle's steering column, which had snapped off on impact. Mr. Vieira placed one hand on the man's wound, applying direct pressure to ease bleeding while using his other hand to contact emergency services.
The driver of the roll-off truck also came to help, but fainted upon seeing the wounds the driver of the car had sustained. While continuing to apply pressure to the wound, Mr. Vieira, used his foot to pull the leg of the driver who had fainted away from traffic.
Emergency personnel arrived and transported both men who were involved in the collision to the hospital. Both of them, Goodyear said, survived.
