State police have issued 14 safety violations to the New Jersey trucking company responsible for the tractor-trailer involved in a July 2 truck crash in Norristown.
Norristown Chief of Police Russell Bono said state police conducted a safety check on the tractor-trailer, owned by T&D Trucking Disposal Logistics, based out of Turnersville, N.J., shortly after the accident at Main and Markley streets, and found there to be 14 safety violations.
The driver of the tractor-trailer told police he was attempting to stop the truck at a red light, traveling north on Route 202 from King of Prussia around 1 p.m. that day, when he realized his brakes went out. The truck went careening across the intersection, striking another vehicle and landing perpendicular across the SEPTA train tracks in front of the Main Street station. It ricocheted into four other cars, causing damages.
Police have not yet released the nature of the 14 violations.
