Andrew Wolfson wrote an excellent article for the Louisville, Kentucky Currier-Journal on the dangerous trucking company that was responsible for putting truck on the road that killed eleven people in Kentucky. The company, identified as Hester, Inc. DOT number 1222388, had horrible safety scores, putting it in the bottom percentages of all trucking companies its size in America. In short, from a safety standpoint, the company put the lives of its drivers and members of the public at risk on a daily basis.
Previously I blogged on possible causes for this collision, now the NTSB is investigating and we will see which of my possible explanations is right. Mr Wolfson made a good choice in speaking to qualified experts and a fine trucking attorney, who I am happy to call a friend, Tim Lange.
