I remember hearing a story that I believe was either President Roosevelt or President Truman which involved his driver. There was a crash or incident because of his driver's error or negligence. After the crash the driver was so repentant that he was not fired and continued as his personal driver.
It's also possible that this was a pilot/plane instead of a driver/car.
Can anyone verify whether this is a factual story and point me to where I could find the details if true?
