New Mexico-based Bobby Cleveland was issued an imminent hazard out-of-service order after he was involved in a crash in April in which he overturned his truck and tanker, which was loaded with 2,400 gallons of propane. The propane spilled across Interstate 40, causing the highway to close temporarily.

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.
This can and has happened in North Carolina. This is clearly why a company must qualify it's drivers, monitor their behavior and driving habits and take meaningful corrective action when necessary.  Having meaningful company policies is the first step toward compliance with DOT Regulations.
