UPS drivers honored for quarter-century without a Carolina truck accident

Certainly our Greenville personal injury lawyers often report on the serious and fatal car and truck accidents caused by all types of poor driving behavior, including speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving.

But we really must take a moment to salute Hubert Crisp Jr., of Greenville, who has spent the last 40 years navigating his big brown truck without a single Carolina traffic accident.

The Greenville News reports it is good enough to tie Crisp for sixth-best of UPS’s 102,000 drivers. He is one of the company’s 22 elite drivers in South Carolina.

Accidents involving large trucks are especially hazardous to Carolina motorists.

The Business Journal reported that 11 drivers in the Triad were honored, putting them among 54 elite drivers in North Carolina.

“UPS puts a premium on safe-driving methods and training, and these drivers represent the best of the industry,” said Dow Dameron, president and chief operating officer, UPS South Atlantic District. “I’m very proud of these men and women. To go at least a quarter-of-a-century without an accident is a testament to the effectiveness of that training and to the pride our people take in their jobs.”
