Trucker blocks traffic in frustration over shipper policies

Published:

Trucker blocks traffic after becoming frustrated over policies at warehouse during pickup. 

The incident occurred on January 30th at the Dr. Pepper and Snapple warehouse on 1371 Center Mills Road in Adams County, Pennsylvania. The press release covering the incident was not released until February 10th. 

According to Local News 21, police responded to the area after receiving reports of “severe congestion” outside the warehouse. When officers arrived, they discovered a truck driver had intentionally stopped his semi truck in the road, blocking traffic. 57-year-old trucker Mark Gray refused to move his truck for 30 minutes in protest of warehouse policies that had upset him. 

Officers say Gray’s roadblock caused unsafe driving conditions. He was instructed to leave the premises without his shipment and was issued a citation for disorderly conduct. Gray reportedly lives in Fort Worth, Texas.
