A 33-year-old Ohio truck driver has been ordered off the road by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The FMCSA issued the man with an out of service order on Oct. 28 because he has been charged with several drug violations and involved in numerous alcohol or drug-related accidents. The most serious accident took place on Sept. 28 when the man's semi-tractor trailer crossed the center line on State Road 534 and struck a cargo van head-on. The van's driver and passenger both died in the crash.
Following the truck accident, the man was cited for driving under the influence of one Schedule I and two non-prescribed Schedule II drugs. He was subsequently terminated by his employer for failing to submit to mandated toxicology testing within 32 hours of the crash.
