Oxford UPS employees surprise coworker with new car

Derrick Taylor's day starts around 3 a.m.

"It's a lot of lifting, lowering, bending," Taylor said.

He works at the UPS in Oxford and most days he ends up walking there.

"Some days strangers would ask and I'd just keep on walking," he said.

It became his routine.

"Everyday I came here folks asked me was I able to get a car, have I saved enough money to get a car," Taylor said. "But I take care of a lot at my house."

So Taylor had no idea the people asking those questions were going to get him a new car, to make his commute easier.

"They say for being a hard worker," he said. "I really don't feel like I deserve it, but a lot of people say I do."

James Ward was one of many who helped make this possible.

"Of course I got emotional," Ward said. "Because to see someone happy, to see that you're doing something for someone to make them happy, makes me feel good."

Not only did he make Taylor's commute easier, but he also changed a life.

"It changed a lot for everybody," Taylor said. "For me, my brother, my sister."
