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.
