PostHeaderIcon The Company Behind the Recent Takata Airbag Crash Ordered to Cease Operations

Remember that truck full of Takata air bags that crashed and exploded a couple of months ago, effectively leveling a house, killing one, and injuring a few others? Well, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has been investigating the accident ever since to determine just what happened. As it turns out, the driver of the truck entered a curve too quickly, which ultimately caused it to leave the roadway, tip over, and catch on fire — ultimately leading to the explosion. As is the standard procedure for accidents like this, the company that owns the truck – Industrial Transit – was also investigated and found to be in violation of several federal safety regulations. The FMCSA, in turn, issued an order for the company to immediately cease all operations as it is officially declared “an imminent hazard to public safety.”

Industrial Transit has just five trucks, all of which are normally used for hauling automotive parts for various companies. Most automotive parts aren’t considered hazardous material, but airbags are one of the few automotive parts that are. Be that as it may, Industrial Transit has failed to comply with driver qualification requirements, even allowing two drivers over the last few months to operate its trucks without a valid commercial driver’s license. It never implemented random alcohol and drug testing, has failed to keep up on regular inspection, maintenance, and repair of its fleet, and wasn’t monitoring how many hours its drivers spent behind the wheel. Drivers had no formal training for handling hazardous materials, and the company was apparently no good at filling out the necessary paperwork for hazardous materials either.

Sounds crazy right? Well, the FMCSA also found that some of the trucks had brakes that were out of adjustment, loose steering components, oil leaks, and one even had an unsecured fire extinguisher. The company could, ultimately, return to business as usual, but it must first bring itself up to speed, correct the violations, and undergo another full inspection by the FMCSA. If the company refuses to comply with the order to cease operations, it could be fined as much as $25,705. It could also be hit with a fine of at least $10,282 for operating “without necessary authority,” and could suffer a civil penalty of up to $14,502 for operating without a USDOT number. Anyone who violates the order could also be fined up to $25,000 and sentenced to up to one year in prison.

PostHeaderIcon Renault Truck Used In France Terror Attack

As the world continues to grave for those killed and injured in the terrorist attack in Nice, France on July 14, we have speculation on the type of truck used. The truck appears to be a Renault Midlum 220.12. Though the front end is badly damaged, the cab shape and details lead us to the conclusion. Undoubtedly, French officials will conduction detailed investigations and inspections of the truck, so more concrete information will likely come forward.

The medium-duty commercial truck features an extended-style cab and a long, enclosed cargo box. The box itself appears to be roughly 26 feet in length. According to the Telegraph, the truck was loaded with a “a pistol, a larger gun, and a number of fake weapons and grenades.” The driver only used one firearm in shootout with police, however. The Telegraph also reports the truck plowed through the crowd at speeds of approximately 40 mph.

We will bring more information as it becomes available.
