Recently, a log truck with several maintenance issues that led to a set of dual tires coming off a CMV. They not only hit a car. They hit a patrol car.
According to the Georgia Department of Public Safety, “Let’s talk about bad timing. . . This week, a dual set of tires came off a CMV, and struck MCO3 Walker’s patrol car. The trailer also had four inoperative brakes and a crack in the leaf spring hanger. Motor Carrier Officers encourage CMV drivers to do thorough pre-trips, so this can be avoided.”
