Della Sanders, associate vice president of Driver Relations, presented the 3 million safe driving mile award to Douglas Brittenham and 2 million safe driving mile awards to Delton O’Neal Jr. and Paul Tomaselli.
“Talk about Werner proud,” Sanders said. “These three gentlemen came from truck driving schools and were developed as new drivers in the industry to multi-million mile drivers here today.”
Sanders referenced the milestones in baseball terms: the average homerun is 370 feet; with 5,280 feet in one mile, it would take 14 homeruns to equal one mile. That means 98 million homeruns would have to be hit to equal the distance these drivers have safely traveled.
“I think it’s safe to say they have definitely hit a grand slam,” she said.
