Wal-Mart driver honored for 4 million accident-free miles
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, Colorado, 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 a 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.
