Zachary truck driver wins safety competition
ZACHARY - Local truck driver Leroy Williams placed first in his division at the 2014 Louisiana State Truck Driving Championships last week.
The annual contest is designed to test safety practices on the road for truck drivers across the state. Williams was the best this year in the straight-truck class.
Williams, a driver sales representative with Con-way Freight, has been behind the wheel professionally for 26 years and attributes his success to looking out for other drivers on the road and always staying alert.
He will represent the state of Louisiana in his division at the National Truck Driving Championships later this summer.
