THE DIRECTOR of a timber haulier has been disqualified for 10 years after he allowed a Fastrac tractor on the roads with no MOT, road tax or tachograph and which was then involved in a road accident, writes Chris Tindall.
Claire Gilmore, the Traffic Commissioner for Scotland, said it was a miracle no-one was killed after Raddery Sawmill’s tractor trailer, fully loaded with 18 tonnes of timber, became detached and travelled across the carriageway before colliding with another vehicle.
The oncoming vehicle was impaled on the trailer’s drawbar after having travelled through the engine compartment into the passenger cabin. The driver was injured and taken to hospital.
