Truck driver, company facing charges after Edmonton woman killed by separated semi-truck dolly
A 66-year-old truck driver and the company who employed him are facing traffic-related charges after a woman was killed when her minivan was struck by items that fell off of a semi-truck.
(C) Provided by Edmonton Journal Police investigate a collision between a eight-wheel converter dolly that separated off a semi-trailer truck colliding into a vehicle on Lessard Rd. over-pass near the Anthony Henday Dr. in Edmonton, October 28, 2020.
Police responded to reports that a minivan had been travelling on Lessard Road when it was struck by an object that dislodged from a semi-tractor shortly after 7:30 a.m. on Oct.
Load Error Investigators determined the semi was driving west on Lessard Road when an eight-wheel converter dolly separated from it and moved across the road into oncoming traffic. It then hit the driver’s side of the minivan.
The 36-year-old woman driving the vehicle that was hit was pronounced dead at the scene. The EPS major collision Unit has since charged Errol Hunt, 66, with several traffic and safety violations including failure to prepare a trip inspection report as specified by Commercial Vehicle Safety Regulations (CVSR), operating a commercial vehicle in a prohibited manner and operating a heavy truck off of a truck route. He has also been charged with an offense relating to improper braking mechanics.
Rene Transport Ltd. has been charged due to equipment safety system not being properly maintained and the trailer’s hitch mechanism not closing securely.
They were also charged with a violation due to a towing trailer not having enough strength to pull all of its weight.
