Roadway Milestone

Roadway Express in Meridian now has a sixth driver who has reached the milestone of three million miles on the road without a preventable accident.

Richard Holloway has been with the company for 29 years.

To recognize the achievement, Roadway provided Holloway with his own tractor, bearing his name, to drive as long as he's with the company.

"It’s a good living," said Holloway. "A good way to support my family was my main purpose when I started working for Roadway."

Holloway and his wife, Linda, have been married for 36 years.

"When I get to Dallas, I’ll call or whichever end I’m on, I call her to let her know I’m all right," Holloway said.

Holloway said he's started thinking about retirement, but plans to continue his runs to Dallas and back for another year or so.
