The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) last week declared Georgia-licensed truck driver Robert Lee Turner to be an imminent hazard to public safety and ordered him not to operate any commercial motor vehicle in interstate commerce.
Turner was served the federal order on March 25 based on his violation of federal safety regulations.
On March 2 Turner was operating a truck in the Port of Savannah when his vehicle struck a Georgia Port Authority Police Officer, causing serious bodily harm, according to a statement from the FMCSA.
Turner was subsequently arrested and charged by the Georgia State Patrol with driving under the influence of controlled substances. In a post-accident controlled substances test, Turner tested positive for cocaine, according to the FMCSA.
