SINGAPORE: A boss who asked his employee to remove three to four tonnes of coal from an overloaded dump truck to avoid penalties was sentenced to 10 days in jail on Monday (November 21st).

Chan Jet Huat, 56, pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing the course of justice by inciting Chong Kong Pooi to remove the coal. Another charge was considered.

Chong worked as a driver for Hiap Tat Holdings, of which Chan was a director.

On March 4, 2021, Chong loaded hard coal onto his dump truck, which had a maximum laden weight of 28 tons, and drove from Seletar North Link to Fort Road.

On the way, he was stopped by a Land Transport Authority (LTA) officer, who suspected the truck was overloaded. The officer asked Chong to come to an inspection center in Marymount for the weigh-in, but Chong knew the truck was overloaded.

According to Chong, he called Chan to tell him what had happened, and Chan told him to “just try to run”.

On his alleged instructions, Chong made several moves in an effort to escape, including making sharp turns to evade the LTA officer following him on his motorcycle.

The whole incident lasted over four hours and involved eight arrests and five LTA officers and one traffic cop.

Eventually, the truck was towed and impounded in a parking lot, with a note placed on the truck stating that it was under investigation by LTA.

Later that night, Chan drove his car to the entrance of the inspection center to pick up Chong. They drove around the area looking for the truck.

They found the truck near LTA Sin Ming, and Chan asked Chong to use the spare key on the side of the truck to start the vehicle.

Chong did so and Chan ordered Chong to drive the truck about 13 km to Seletar North Link to unload three to four tons of coal from the truck. This was to ensure that the loaded weight of the truck was less than 31 tonnes.

Chong again followed Chan’s instructions. They did this because they thought it would reduce potential penalties for overloading the truck. As Chong’s superior in the workplace, Chan had influence and superiority over Chong, the prosecution said.

The next morning, Chong took the truck back to the inspection center to weigh it, but authorities refused to weigh it because they believed it had been tampered with.

Chong was jailed for a week in October for his role.

Chong’s lawyers, Josephus Tan and Cory Wong, did not ask for more than five to seven days in jail.

They said Chan was Chong’s superior, but there was no evidence to say he had no choice but to comply with Chan’s instructions rather than choosing to follow the law.

They said Chan had an 89-year-old mother in a wheelchair who depended on him for help.

Lima: Two firefighters were killed Friday at Lima airport when a passenger plane slammed into their fire truck during takeoff and then crashed onto the runway, officials said.

Airline LATAM, which operated the domestic flight, said 102 passengers were on board the plane, but added that “no passengers or crew members lost their lives.”

Footage taken by witnesses and broadcast by Peruvian TV stations showed the plane – an Airbus A320, according to aircraft tracking websites – taking off at full speed and crashing into the fire truck, also traveling at high speed .

The aircraft continued on its course with its right side dragging along the runway, sending a trail of flames and smoke. The rear of the aircraft was badly burned.

Lima Airport Partners (LAP), which operates Jorge Chavez Airport, said it “deeply regrets the death of two members of the LAP Aeronautical Firefighters in the accident between a fire truck and the aircraft operating flight LA2213 from Lima to Juliaca.”

LAP added that its “teams are providing the necessary care to all passengers, who are doing well”.

“We are also investigating to determine the cause of the incident,” he added.

Lima firefighters said the alarm was raised at 3:25 p.m. local time (2025 GMT) and four ambulances and rescue units were deployed.
The prosecutor’s office said it would open an investigation into the “possible crimes of culpable homicide and culpable injury”. Airport operations have been suspended “until further notice”, the management company said.

Last month, a LATAM plane with 48 passengers on board made an emergency landing in Asuncion, Paraguay, after flying through a severe storm.

Nigerian police, Ekiti State Command, have arrested a truck driver for allegedly running two police officers to death.

Command spokesman Sunday Abutu while confirming the incident to reporters revealed the unfortunate event that happened yesterday morning.

According to Abutu, the officers came from Iworoko Ekiti to their duty station in Ado Ekiti when the truck rammed them.

The police were on their way. The truck driver was negotiating a diversion placed in the road by the construction company rehabilitating the Ado-Iworoko-Ifaki road by turning left and passed them.

“We learned that they were both dead. The driver of the dumpster was arrested while the corpses were deposited at the morgue of Ekiti State Teaching Hospital,” Abutu noted.

An eyewitness who confirmed the incident, noted that the police were on a motorbike when the truck driver rammed them at a point where traffic was diverted for reconstruction purposes on the Ado-Iworoko split road.

The officers were heading towards the heart of the city as the truck headed towards the direction of Iworoko when the driver suddenly crossed their lane due to the road diversion and ran over them,” the eyewitness said, who pleaded not to be mentioned in the press. .

Reacting to the incident, Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Ekiti State Command, Olusola Joseph, lamented the violation of traffic rules by motorists.

The FRSC boss has warned drivers plying all roads in the state to control their speed to curb senseless carnage.

Joseph said: “Our drivers have to be safety conscious. Some of these premature deaths could have been avoided if we had been careful on the roads. I call on our people to always respect road safety measures for the safety of lives”.

Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers Recovered Over $1 Billion for Clients in Kentucky and Tennessee

LOUISVILLE, KY /ACCESSWIRE/November 9, 2022/ With large trucks carrying most of our country’s goods on the roads, more trucks are on the road than ever before. In fact, according to the American Trucker Association, American truckers hauled 11.84 billion tons of freight in 2019, which has only increased over the years. With more large trucks on the road, there is more risk of wreckage with serious injury and death caused by driver error and negligence, such as fatigue and speed.

In a study of the causes of large truck accidents by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which examined the reasons for serious accidents involving large trucks, the results show that although crashes are complex events, speed, fatigue, and loss of vehicle control were significant factors in the sample crashes examined. In fact, according to a national estimate, of 141,000 large truck wrecks resulting in death and injury, 13% of those wrecks were due to driver fatigue and 23% to excessive speed.

These statistics are high and alarming, as they put many responsible drivers of passenger vehicles on the road at risk. Being involved in a large truck wreck that causes injury can affect the driver, passengers, and even their loved ones. While the thought is scary, the logistics can be even scarier due to the complex legal and insurance teams that support large trucking companies. Oftentimes, controlling lost revenue and protecting safety records is a goal for large trucking companies, and they will stop at nothing to support themselves, even if their drivers are at fault.

This action can have devastating consequences for you and your family.

For hours on Friday, hundreds of protesting truckers blocked the Auchi-Benin highway in Edo state to protest the dire road condition.

For the duration of the protest, commuters on the road were blocked as all adjacent roads that could serve as detours were also blocked.

The problem has been compounded in light of the penultimate week suspension of three department heads, HoS, in three local government areas across the state for allowing articulated vehicles to destroy feeder roads in their localities. . The action led to the closure of Main Road C in the Edo North Senatorial District of the state to

Angry drivers blocked the road as motorists were forced to seek alternate routes into and out of the state.

The protesting truckers, who carried signs with various inscriptions, vowed to continue their protest until their demands are met.

Saturday Tribune noticed a long strip of articulated vehicles parked indiscriminately, piled up along the Jattu junction and the Auchi Polytechnic gate.

One of the protest coordinators, Mr Donald Etamobe, who spoke to reporters, said, “We will not stop this protest for good roads until the federal government addresses it.” . Kadiri said.

“The demonstration has become inevitable due to the bad road from Auchi to Benin which is impassable at the moment. Subsequently, the barricade of alternative routes by the Edo State government, hence the peaceful protest,” Etamobe said.

A commuter, Lawal Abdullahi, told reporters he parked his car in Aviele and took a motorbike to his office in Auchi.
