If they did proper background checks, this might have been prevented! JDT should be held accountable.........I foresee a lot of lawsuits against this company.

Sounds like that outfit will hire anybody who comes in the door! This guy had 3 speeding tickets while driving a school bus, a couple more in his own car, had caused an accident already with this company and they just kept letting the trucks, one of them which turned into an murder weapon thanks to him. I'm sure all the family and friends of the innocent deceased are rightly wishing the bastard had never been born now.

The media got it wrong about the speeding ticket in the school bus, but it was a commercial vehicle he did get the tickets in, in ran into the back of a Toyota carry sending two kids and their mother to the hospital, thankfully they lived! But your right they will hire anyone! The trucking company is horrible, I live in battle mountain, I know

Where did you see the media got in wrong about the school bus speeding tickets? That was supposed to be in California when he drove a school bus and there were not 1 but 3 speeding tickets! Wasn't the wreck he caused when he was working for this John Davis trucking outfit? There were yet more citations when he was driving his own car in California and some other state, Alabama I think! All the evidence points to a reckless driving jerk who didn't belong on the road at all!

On that we do agree! Thanks for that link about the school bus story being in error. People driving a school bus have an extraordinary obligation to drive safely of course. I once got one fired for driving around gates directly in front of a train, an Amtrak train at that! This John Davis Trucking Company employee's record of being a reckless, multi-ticketed driver remains but not of doing so in a school bus.

or maybe john davis trucking should not have hired that person to drive a semi truck to begin with. i noticed on their website (john davis trucking) the company offers up a saftey bonus to the drivers? umm, so if someone goes to work there and not crash into an amtrak passenger train killing people (within the first 3 months of employment)they qualify for the bonus? i wonder how much bonus money is offered up. in my opinion (based on the FMCSA saftey rating), that complete outfit should not have been operating! CSA2010 will them by the balls! that family owned business will be family itself without trucking company looking for a different way to earn a living after the FMCSA gets done.
