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.
