Texas UPS driver goes 1 million miles, no crashes

A routine package delivery turned into a milestone for a UPS driver in East Texas.

Brent Boyd on Thursday surpassed one million miles on his UPS delivery van, the same vehicle he's driven for 22 years with the company.

The odometer on Boyd's 1987 GMC truck rolled over to all zeros as he began his delivery route near Palestine.

The 51-year-old says he's never had an accident with his company vehicle.

Boyd told The Associated Press that his truck's gone through at least three engines and been repainted almost as many times.

But he's resisted offers for a new van. Boyd says the truck is "like home" and feels like "sitting in the recliner in your house."

Palestine is 105 miles southeast of Dallas.
