Lee County, FL  – Rene Lieurance, a Front Load Commercial Driver who has been with the Waste Pro Ft. Myers Division for more than a decade, was in the right place at the right time.

As he was on his route on Saturday, Lieurance came across a crash on State Road 82 and Buckingham Road in Lee County. First responders had not yet arrived. Lieurance approached a car on its side, removed the windshield, and cut the seat belts to remove the occupants of the vehicle. He then grabbed a towel from his truck to help one of the passengers who was bleeding.

First responders arrived shortly after and were able to help everyone else on the scene.

“We are very fortunate to have such great, fast-acting people willing to assist and care for the people in their communities,” said Division Manager Bill Jones.
