Maryland State Police stop four Sky Express buses

Acting on a tip from a motorist on June 10, Maryland State Police stopped four Sky Express buses on the Capital Beltway. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, police found that the buses were being repossessed by lienholders in North Carolina. Sky Express was shut down by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration after one of its buses was involved in a deadly crash in Virginia on May 31 that killed four people.

Staten Island, NY-based Bulldog Transport & Recovery, a repossession company, hired the drivers. The company was hired to return the buses to the lienholder in Greensboro, NC.

Two of the drivers did not have commercial driver’s licenses and no required logbooks were found. Both were charged with unqualified to operate a commercial vehicle, which carries a fine of more than $1,000. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that the drivers did not think they needed a CDL because the buses were not hauling passengers. The buses were taken off the road for 10 hours because of the missing logbooks, and replacement drivers were sent south. For more, visit www.timesdispatch.com.
