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 and traveled to Bentonville on Saturday to be honored by company executives.
The 59-year-old rolled up the mileage over 31 years and four months, an average of about 500 miles each working day. Company executives presented him with a new rig painted in red. Wal-Mart drivers who hit the 3 million-mile accident-free mark receive blue rigs.
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 that they never came.
The company flew Greene in for the celebration so he wouldn't have to drive.
