On Feb. 10, 2011, criminal charges, including homicide by vehicle, were filed against a New York trucker whose license was suspended at the time of the 2/2/11 fatal Montco motorcycle crash. According to The Pottstown Mercury, Montgomery County PA investigators learned that the driver’s license had been suspended 22 times since 2007.

The defendant had made an illegal u-turn on Route 309 which allegedly blocked the rider’s lane of travel and denied him any safe alternative to avoid the accident. Police investigators found multiple violations regarding the maintenance of the truck and the driver’s logs.
