A million miles on one truck

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

Brent Boyd on Thursday surpassed 1 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 driver says he’s never had an accident with his company vehicle.

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