The FMCSA ordered the immediate shutdown of carrier DND International after an investigation found serious and widespread safety violations. The investigation was prompted by an accident in January where one of the company’s drivers crashed into an Illinois State Police cruiser and a highway maintenance vehicle, killing a tollway worker and injuring the state trooper who is still in intensive care.
According to the out-of-service order, in addition to being an imminent hazard to public safety, the company had an “unmistakable, dangerous pattern of serious falsification” of drivers’ logbooks which allowed drivers to far exceed the allowable hours of service. According to the team prosecuting the driver, he had been working for 36 hours with a break of only 3.5 hours leading up to the accident.
