Trucker honored for driving 4 million miles without an accident


Bill Compton has racked up 4 million miles driving with Con-way Truckload over the last 33 years, without having an accident, making him the only driver for Con-way and CFI to have reached this milestone.

To put that into perspective - 4 million miles is equivalent to driving around the world 166 times, and to the moon and back 16.8 times.

For the average Con-way driver, one million miles would take about 10 years.

"We really look up to him," says Con-way Truckload President Saul Gonzalez.  "He's a true leader in the industry."

"I never thought I'd ever be this important to anybody, I guess," says Compton.

In Compton's 33 years with Con-way he has driven 30 different trucks.

Compton's current route has him averaging around 3,150 miles a week.
