Trucker Out Of Service After Crashing With Heroin, Beer, And Xanax In Truck

DOT Regulatory Reform Task Force To Target Last Minute Obama-Era Rules

The FMCSA has ordered a Tennessee-based truck driver out-of-service after police found various illegal substances in his rig following a crash that injured a motorist.

Illegal Turn Leads To Crash

According to the FMCSA, truck driver Jason L. Flynn was involved in an injury crash on March 17, 2016, in Georgia. Reports say that Flynn made an illegal turn, which resulted in a crash. A motorist was injured after his vehicle became wedged under the truck during the crash.

When Georgia State Troopers arrived on the scene, they found an open case of beer along with several open cans.

After searching Flynn’s truck, they also found the prescription drug Xanax, a bag of heroin, and a syringe.

Troopers used a field sobriety test to determine that Flynn was under the influence of alcohol.

Flynn also violated several hour of service regulations.

Out Of Service Order Delivered To Trucker

On April 21, Flynn was served with an order declaring him to be an imminent hazard to the motoring public and ordering him out of service.
