LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A long-distance truck driver for Wal-Mart has been recognized for traveling 4 million miles without an accident.
Warren Greeno of Loveland, Colo., reached the milestone this year. Today, Wal-Mart executives in Arkansas presented him with a new rig painted red.
The 59-year-old rolled up the mileage over 31 years and four months, an average of about 500 miles each working day.
Greeno said in an interview this week that there were half-dozen near-collisions. He said he waited for "the thump and the crash" but they never came.
The company flew Greene in for the celebration so he wouldn't have to drive.
