Shouldn’t a ‘good employee’ in trucking field have valid license?

| Jan 26, 2015 | Uncategorized

On behalf of Kammholz Law PLLC posted in Truck Accidents on Friday, January 27, 2012.

A bridge in South Fallsburg, New York, will soon be no more. Why? Because of a truck accident that took place on the bridge and that could have been easily prevented. According to news reports, a truck driver who worked for a waste company in New York drove along the bridge recently, but he didn’t make it over safely. The driver had forgotten to lower the bed of the dump truck, which caused great damage to the bridge, damage that requires the bridge to be completely torn down. It isn’t just the damage and the loss of a bridge that makes this truck accident a big news story. Upon investigation, officials found that the driver who caused the accident doesn’t even have a New York driver’s license. The only license that he does have is from Jamaica, and he is, therefore, not qualified to be driving a dump truck in this state. Fortunately, no one else was on the bridge at the time of the accident. It’s a pedestrian bridge, so it’s easy to imagine how the incident could have ended more tragically. The only person hurt in the accident was the driver himself. Him, and the community that has to see a long-standing bridge go. The company who employed the driver is now at the center of an investigation. Officials want to know why they thought it was okay to have a driver on their team who is not licensed to drive in the state. Basically, the company claims that the driver was a “good employee.” One can’t help but wonder: In an economy where so many people are looking for jobs, wasn’t there at least one other candidate with a proper driver’s license who could have filled this man’s place?
