3 Charged With Homicide By Vehicle After Unsafe Semi Kills Man

3 charged in fatal truck crash

Authorities said the crash on the Schuylkill occurred because the truck's braking systems were not operating. A father of three was killed.

The life of a Fort Washington man - the father of three children - was sacrificed to get a load of broccoli delivered on time to New Jersey by a driver who had no business being on the road and driving a tractor-trailer that had almost no functioning brakes, according to authorities.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman on Tuesday announced that authorities are holding three men responsible for the fatal six-vehicle pileup last January on the Schuylkill Expressway that took the life of David Schreffler, 49, a husband and father of three.

The three men were charged with homicide by motor vehicle, recklessly endangering others and related offenses stemming from the accident caused by the tractor-trailer on which none of the 10 braking devices were operating.More...

"Asked how they could have valid inspection stickers on the vehicle, Belovs told authorities that "it is well known in the Russian community where you can purchase Pennsylvania inspection stickers without having your vehicle inspected," the criminal complaint said. He directed authorities to Pratts Auto Service in Philadelphia."

If the motoring public only knew the real truth behind what really goes on in the trucking industry as far as maintaining safe equipment and employing safe, qualified drivers, and following safety rules and regulations as required by the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Act, they'd never step foot on an interstate highway again.
