A brave bread delivery man has been honoured for his heroism after he successfully stopped the drunk driver of a luxury vehicle from crashing into oncoming traffic.

Zain Small, 24, from Monte Vista was presented with a commendation for his bravery and tokens of the City of Cape Town’s appreciation on Monday.

Small was transporting bread in his delivery truck at 11.15pm on Tuesday when he spotted an elderly man in a white Jaguar “driving erratically” on the N1.

The 71-year-old was driving into oncoming traffic at about 70km/h, avoiding collisions “by a hair’s breadth”.
