*Consumer Suggestion: You Must Challenge This - Here's How
*Consumer Comment: Paul is on target here, again!
*Consumer Suggestion: I've heard of other drivers who claimed to have the same problems with their fifth wheels
*Consumer Comment: Did you veiw the accident report
On July 16,2005 I was employed by National Freight,Inc. to a dispatched load# 1989299 from Baldwinville,N.Y. to Atlana,GA. TO Atlanta Beverage,Inc.
This was a beer load to Atlanta. I arrived at Anhesuer Busch,on Beverage Rd. in Baldwinville,N.Y. I signed in and dropped my empty trailer. I recieved my loaded trailer number and hooked up to it and slid the tandems to the front at the appropiate setting. I then proceeded to the uard shack to have the loaded railer weighed by guard shack.
The trailer was weighed and I was given the Bill Of Lading, and I Qualcomm my Loaded Call.I got on the New York Thruway on I-90 East eXIT 36 to Exit 38 to I-81 South to Syracuse, N.Y.
I went through the Prepass booths,through Syracuse,N.Y. continuing to Onondaga, N.Y. through the construction zone. I felt a tug or jerking passing through construction as I was reaching the top of the incline of the hill on I-81 south. The trailer disconncted from the tractor, resulting in front damage to trailer and landing gear.
Police enforcement arrived and the Safety department was notified of the incident.I explained what happened and that I had driven 35 miles and the kingpin disconnected from the trailer. Obviously, the fifth wheel locking mechanism malfunctioned which caused the disconnection, several thousand dollars of damage to the trailer.
The law enforcement officer saw what the result was, the towing company saw the same thing. No citation was issued to me just the accident report sheet. A new 48 foot traler was brought to me from Baldwinville, N.Y. by another driver name Brian. I assisted towing personnel in shrink wrapping the frieght onto the new trailer, 21 skids of beer.
Dispatch had me drive the new trailer back to Baldwinville, N.Y. to Anhesuer Busch for reloading, which they refused. I notified dispatch of the refusal.
Dispatched routed me to Albany, N.Y. with the loaded trailer to the Fuera Bush, N.Y. terminal. I arrived about 1200 hrs,and I waited to be dispatched for another load to Atlanta, GA. to go home.
After hours of waiting I sent messages to dispatch and they stalled stating there were no loads. I asked to go home, and there was no reply. Sunday, July 17,2005 came and went,on Monday July 18,2005, my dispatcher James was back at work. We rehashed the incident,the mileage,the fuel,so we waiting for a load to Atlanta ,GA. About 1200 on July 18,2005 my dispatcher James and corporate safety Matthews and another unknown individual was on the line with us, and safety Mr. Matthews stated that National Frieght,Inc. had decide to release me and that nothing deragatory would be against me.
Mr. Matthews stated that he didn't want to hurt my trucking career. He stated to turn in the keys to the tractor and to take whatever I could carry on the bus and a ticket would be at the bus station.
He told me all of my belonging would be boxed up and sent to Atlanta, GA. ASAP.I am still waiting for my CB radio, coolers, clothes, tools, oil that I purchased, sleeping bag, comforter and goodies.
I just applied with JB Hunt and found out that National Freight has done what they said that they would not do to my DAC report and I was denied employment ecause of this issue with National Frieght which was fabricated as being my fault.
These trucking companies are reporting false data on DAC reporting false information,and using drivers any way they can to make money.
