Normally when a driver from Texas hits the news it’s not something to take pride in. Brent Boyd is not normal. Brent has driven a UPS truck for the last 22 years and racked up over a million miles. The impressive bit: He did it in the same truck — and he didn’t have one accident in all that time.
When truck number 507903 was issued to him in 1987, Mr. Boyd got behind the wheel and just didn’t stop. On September 4, 2008 Brent and 507903 rolled right past a million miles, and UPS saw fit to recognize his achievements. You might ask how an old Texas boy celebrates his steady driving and care for his truck — in Brent’s case, breakfast burritos.
