A determined rescuer who saved an unconscious driver on an expressway will be honored by LG.

Han Young-tak (46) saw a Korando SUV sliding along after hitting the median strip on an expressway last Saturday, and found the driver lying unconscious in the car.

He deliberately blocked the SUV's way with his Hyundai Tuscani sedan to prevent a bigger accident, broke the window of the SUV with a hammer and pulled the driver out.

"We decided to give Han an award in recognition of his courageous act in a situation where his own safety could be in danger," LG said Tuesday.

Hyundai, meanwhile, has decided to present Han with a new Veloster sedan.
