Heavy trucker receives apology

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 412-pound truck driver who said he was fired because he could not fit behind the wheel of a delivery truck has received an apology and a bigger rig from his employer.

Walter Geter, 49, also received back pay from USF Holland Inc. to cover wages since his firing Jan. 15. "They were so apologetic, told me it was a mistake and told me this would never happen again," Geter said Wednesday.

Steve Caddy, president of Michigan-based USF Holland, blamed "misunderstandings on both sides of the issue."

"He has been offered a tractor that will accommodate him and has been put back 'into service,"' the company said in a statement.

It's sad to think about, but things like that happen all the time. We worry about what people think about us...what about the ones who can't help that they are the way they are?
