Ryan Bradley | February 1, 2011 | Truck Accident
In Missouri, an lady who was injured by a impaired truck driver under the influence of methamphetamine, amphetamine and methamphetamine metabolites, has been paid $2,000,000.00 to settle her personal injury claim. On October 4, 2007, the victim has traveling in Franklin County when the truck driver rear-ended her, forcing her vehicle off the roadway. Under the federal motor carrier regulations, which control the interstate operation of tractor trailers, whenever any accident results in personal injuries, the driver must submit to a drug test. In this case, the driver underwent a urine test, which revealed the presence of these drugs. This goes to show how important these regulations are in protecting innocent individuals and families from bad truck drivers. In all likelihood, this driver will never be allowed to operate a tractor trailer again
