OXFORD (KWWL) -

A local trucking company is in the running for a national award given to the safest trucking companies in the country.

Don Hummer Trucking Corp., based in Oxford, was recognized last month for having the second lowest accident frequency for fleets that travel between 15 million and 24.99 million miles per year.

Don Hummer Trucking is one of nine finalists for the grand prize presented by the Truckload Carriers Association in the under 25 million miles category.

Two carriers are recognized each year. Winners are selected based on operator selection procedures, training, supervision, accident investigation, inspection and maintenance of equipment, as well as outside activities including general highway safety.

The grand prize winners will be announced at the Truckload Carriers Association Annual Convention which is being held March 8 through 11.
