How in the*****was this guy driving a logging truck on a suspended license? Also, the DOT has random drug testing and strict regulations for these CDL drivers. The logging truck company should be investigated as well

If his CDL or any other license was suspended, he would not be subject to random drug tests. I suspect the Swift family survivors will soon own a trucking company.

"uphoosier" EXACTLY, meaning the logging company had to know he was driving on a suspended license, and did not properly report him as a driver for their business. It is so sad that shady business practices were the cause of this loss of life.

I read, "n the event that Durocher should post bond, conditions set by the judge Monday included the defendant undergoing random drug testing, not operating a motor vehicle, and not using or possessing a controlled substance."

So very, very sad and bad those restrictions weren't in place after he lost his license - perhaps there wouldn't have been deaths involved in this. And then too, saying that he would NOW be watched more closely doesn't really make the situation easier to take for those who have lost loved ones.

We always seem to be trying to close the barn door after all the livestock has run off..
