Federal investigators are taking a close look at a Black River Falls, WI, trucking company following a multi-fatality wreck on the Indiana Toll Road on Aug. 1.
Federal inspectors had already scheduled a top-to-bottom
compliance review of the company before the fatal crash.
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration spokesman Duane
DeBruyne told Land Line that post-crash reviews are “robust” – but this
one will have an “extra element of vigilance given the circumstances.”
FMCSA reports that the company, Millis Transfer, has a
better-than-average inspection rating for its vehicles and a slightly
worse-than-average rating for its drivers.
A Millis Transfer driver, 57-year-old Clyde Roberts, was one
of five people killed when his truck hit a minivan in a construction zone.
