Teen arrested in Texas for driving a big rig without a driver’s license


This week, a Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) deputy arrested a teenager for driving a big rig without a driver’s license.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on Monday, March 4, a deputy patrolling near Fredericksburg, Texas, spotted a “truck-tractor and trailer driving southbound swerving off the roadway and back into the left lane causing two vehicles to swerve across the double yellow lines into oncoming traffic to avoid being struck.”

The deputy pulled the truck over at south US Highway 87 and Breezy Hills Drive.

During the traffic stop, the deputy learned that the driver of the truck was a seventeen year old male from Del Valle, Texas, who did not have a driver’s license.

The teen told the deputy that this was his first time driving a semi truck and that he was hauling several crushed cars to San Antonio.

“Due to the reckless nature of his driving and having no driver’s license, the driver was placed under arrest for No Driver’s License and the 18-wheeler was towed by a local wrecker,” GCSO said.
