Shifting Load Kills I-65 Trucker

A truck driver was killed on I-65 this morning when police say a sudden stop caused his load of steel piping to shift on top of him.   The victim, a 38-year-old Ohio man, died after he stopped his semi tractor-trailer along northbound I-65 north of the Raymond Street exit at about 7:51 a.m., said Indiana State Police Sgt. Ray Poole.  “For some unknown reason, he stopped abruptly and the load shifted forward,” Poole said. “The heavy steel piping came into the back of the tractor, killing... read more

Trucker Likely Fell Asleep Before Westmoreland Co. Accident

A truck driver probably fell asleep before his tractor-trailer slammed into a car, killing a Honduran diplomat.  Trooper Kevin McNamara said truck driver Sam P. Thompson, 32, of Gaithersburg, Md, falsified his driver’s log a few hours before the Feb. 8 crash.

My opinion is that only 2 1/2 feet of the car was on the right lane of the highway and the rest was already over in the pull-off,” McNamara said.   “I think he fell asleep, drove up the embankment and finally grabbed the wheel,” McNamara said.  McNamara said he picked up paperwork, including Thompson’s driver’s log, strewn on the ground surrounding the truck.  He said Thompson’s last previous stop, the Libby Glass factory in Toledo, had recorded he was there about 12 hours before the crash.  “He reported in his log that he was sleeping during that time … so he committed a false log,” McNamara said.  “There is no indication he made any attempt to steer to the left.”  Thompson will stand trial for following too closely, driving at an... read more

Truck With Bad Brakes Called ‘Deadly Weapon’ After Fatal Crash; Driver Charged

A truck that crashed with a motorcycle, killing its rider, had such equipment violations, police say it was a deadly weapon.   The Dover Police Department today said they have charged 48-year-old Curtis Smith of Greenwood with possession of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony, first-degree reckless endangering and five federal motor carrier violations.  Smith was driving a dump truck south on McKee Road.  The truck and cycle crashed in the intersection, killing Bowden. Smith was unhurt, police said.  “Investigation into the accident revealed that Smith was operating a 10-wheel dump truck, which had inadequate brakes and equipment violations”.   An inspection by the Dover Police Accident Reconstruction Team and the Delaware State Police team that specializes in fatal accident investigation determined, “the truck was in such condition that it endangered the life of others on the roadway,” Getek said.   Smith was arrested last week in connection with the July 14, 2006... read more
