Roanoke Man Rescued After Spending 24 Hours in Tractor-Trailer

Posted:

Keysville, VA - Curiosity and a phone call may have saved the life of a Roanoke truck driver.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office says a concerned motorist called their office around 4:30 Saturday afternoon, after noticing a tractor trailer parked off Farmville Highway for more than 24 hours.

When deputies arrived, they found the driver, Donald Henderson, lying on the floor of the truck, semi-unconscious, dehydrated and barely able to speak.

Deputies say he was rushed to Farmville's hospital and then taken to UVA for a severe case of the flu.

They say he's still in the hospital, but expected to make a full recovery.
