Petal man named X-L Insurance Trucker of the year

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - A Petal man has been named the X-L Insurance Truck Driver of the Year.

Dale Allan Blair has worked for Miller Transporters of Jackson for the past 31 years. In that time he has amassed two million eight hundred thousand miles hauling hazardous chemicals. He has been able to do so without a single accident. Miller Transporters President Lee Miller says he thinks Blair's safety record is an extraordinary accomplishment.

"I think it's rare for anyone to go over a year or two without any sort of an accident," said Miller. "For him to have gone 32 years and counting without one defies odds."

A luncheon in Blair's honor was held at Chesterfield's in Hattiesburg Monday afternoon.
