Car donated to man who walks 21 miles to work daily

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (CNN) – The Detroit man who walked 21 miles a day to get to and from work is getting a new car.

America learned of James Robertson's plight earlier this week.

He started walking to his factory job a decade ago when his car died, and his walking route grew due to the factory being moved and bus service being cut.

A college student launched a fundraiser for Robertson on Go Fund Me.

In just four days, thousands of donors provided more than $300,000.

Now, a Michigan car dealership is giving Robertson a 2015 Ford Taurus.

 

The dealership's manager says no one deserves the car more than Robertson.
