(RAITH, ONT) – A REAL Concerned Citizen submitted this video to our Facebook page, in shock that this transport driver was so seemingly incompetent. The dangerous incident occurred this past Wednesday.
This incident happened on Highway 17 about an hours drive west of Thunder Bay near Raith. Jake Maxwell tells us that the transport was attempting to pass the vehicle he was in, despite oncoming traffic coming. His vehicle promptly pulled over to make room, but as you can see in the video, the passing transport stayed in the wrong lane, which resulted in a camper and transport to leave the roadway. This occurred on the Raith Flats, and they were headed to Thunder Bay.
Maxwell tells us that later on in the day, when he was able to talk to the driver of the transport, that they had no clue that they had done something so dangerous. The police have been contacted and the trucks plates have been submitted.
Maxwell tells us that the company was Light Speed Logistics and that the driver could barely speak English.
If you see any dangerous drivers on our roads, please have a passenger videotape it, get the license plate number if its possible to do so safely, and then call the OPP at 1 888 310-1122 or 911.
