DOT shuts down another driver after fatal accident

| May 23, 2013

In the second imminent hazard out-of-service order issued to a driver this month, the Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has shut down South Carolina-based trucker Arnold Bradford Williams after he was charged with reckless homicide and possessing an open alcohol beverage container.

The charges follow an arrest made after Williams’ crashed his truck and trailer on I-526 into four stopped vehicles. One person was killed and three were injured.

The imminent hazard order was issued based on the violations of federal regulations that prohibit drivers of trucks to operate under vehicles under the influence of alcohol.

    It’s idiots like this that give the rest of us a bad name. Why can’t these jerks wait until they are off duty to have their alcohol? If the dude is an alcoholic, this isn’t a job he should have ever considered. Part of being a professional driver is being able to control yourself with regard to alcohol and controlled substances. Now someone is dead because this guy lacked the professionalism and self-control it takes to refrain from drinking alcohol and getting behind the wheel of an 80,000 lb commercial vehicle. Great job Arnold Bradford Williams… I sincerely hope you pay dearly for this.
