JJ drivers Daniel and Florin help prevent a serious accident

Two JJ Foodservice drivers helped to prevent a potentially fatal accident after a driver’s brakes failed on the A1 motorway on 5 August.

On their way to delivering groceries to homes in Leicester, Daniel Samoluk (pictured right) and Florin Wolf (left) noticed that the front wheel of the car ahead them had come off, tearing the brake cables and leaving the driver unable to stop in the usual manner.

Controlling the vehicle with just three wheels, the driver managed to deliberately crash the car into bushes, off the road.

The JJ drivers watched everything unfold and blocked the traffic behind by covering both lanes, helping to keep the driver safe. They then stopped to check that the driver was okay, helped him out of the car, and even got his wheel back!

The daughter of the motorist put out an appeal on Facebook to find the drivers. She eventually found them and extended her thanks.

JJ Foodservice CEO Mustafa Kiamil said of the incident: “We are so proud of our drivers – Florin and Daniel are a great demonstration of the first-class service we always strive for at JJ Foodservice.”
