City Worker Being Called "A Hero"

A city works employee is being recognised for saving the life of a colleague when a one ton truck collided with an asphalt trailer a month ago.

Kevin Hicks was part of a maintenance crew that was deploying equipment along Hillcrest Road for an asphalt job. A one ton truck was approaching the work site but wasn't slowing down. 

Even though he couldn't see the truck approaching, Hicks recognised by the sound that it wasn't slowing down and he pulled fellow crew member Ken McCarthy out of the way just in the nick of time because a split second later the collision happened.
