C.R. England trainer gives a scare to two newbies

| 1/4/2008

A truck driving instructor for a Salt Lake City-based motor carrier recently gave new meaning to the phrase “crash course.”

The Pittsburg Post Gazette reports that instructor Bruce Rushton had two students in his cab when he ran into a light post at a restaurant in Bedford Township, PA. Rushton is a driver trainer for C.R. England Inc.

Making matters worse, police say Rushton then fled north on Interstate 99, but was stopped by police after a witness told them about the damaged light post.
