MILFORD, Del.- A Wal-Mart employee in Milford, Delaware is recovering in the hospital after an accident at the store. 

Atwood Tucker is not just any employee. The 80-year-old greeter is known as "Mr. Wal-Mart."

Last Friday, Tucker was leaving work when a shopping cart he was pushing was hit by a driver. The shopping cart hit Tucker, knocking him to the ground. He suffered 14 broken ribs, a bruised lung, and a concussion. Now, co-workers hope for a speedy recovery.

"Atwood at Wal-Mart is kind of our mascot. He is the friendliest, most gentle soul man you will ever meet," said Sumer Edger, operations manager at Wal-Mart.

Tucker and his wife live on a fixed income, and his family has established a gofundme account.
