1 dead in I-85 tractor trailer crash
State Troopers are still investigating the cause of this accident and why the driver lost control of the truck. The truck was operated by Swift Transportation, based in Phoenix. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Swift drivers have been cited 4,098 times for unsafe driving in the last two years. 1 in 10 Swift drivers have been in a crash since 2014, 55 of which have been fatal. This accident makes 56.
Pretty sure a much smaller carrier would have been deemed unsafe and shut down or forced into a program for improvement. I know I would have long ago had my iss score jacked up so high it would have negated my prepass account and gotten me a 100% pull in.
