CAVANTS: ‘I don’t think this is about me’ – truck driver who says he was hit by truck with a deadly ricochet

B.C. truck driver and former driver who claims he was struck by a car while he was working on his truck is launching a campaign to expose the negligence of trucking companies and companies who have a direct link to trucking.

“It is not about me.

I am the one who lost my life, and they should be held accountable for that,” said Jeff McNeil, who is fighting for a full investigation into his death.

McNeil was a passenger in a cab truck in Surrey, B.T.C., on Aug. 28, 2015, when he was allegedly hit by a Toyota Prius driven by a 32-year-old woman who was working as a security guard.

“I think the system was not in place to deal with this, to stop the death of people,” said McNeil.

“This was a tragedy that was beyond our control, and that’s why I am here.”

McNeil’s mother said she has been calling for a thorough investigation of the accident, and the investigation should include both police and the Crown corporation that hired the company.

“They need to be held to account, they need to have accountability,” said her mother, Debbie McNeil of Surrey.

“We are not the only ones to lose their lives, it’s just a tragedy.”

According to a recent investigation by the B.A.C.’s Ministry of Transportation, there are more than 20,000 truck drivers in B.E.C..

The B.D. Howe Institute, a private safety research institute, says the trucking industry is a major driver of workplace deaths in Canada.

“While a number of truck operators have taken steps to ensure their trucks are properly inspected and maintained, there remains much work to be done to improve safety in the industry,” the institute said in a statement.

The BCA says the driver of the Toyota Priux was a new hire and was in her first week on the job when the collision happened.

The driver of a truck driven by John W. Smith was also injured in the accident.

He remains in hospital and is expected to recover.

Smith’s attorney, Stephen Micallef, says his client is grateful for the outpouring of support he has received from the public and from his family.

“Our clients are grieving the loss of their loved ones, as well as a significant loss of time,” said Micalledf.

“It’s an important time for John to deal fully with this loss, but he has taken a very, very strong and positive step.”

In its report, the ministry says it has found “significant deficiencies” in the truck driver training program at some of the companies it inspected.

It also said the company’s “failure to follow its own policies regarding the proper training of its drivers and training of their supervisors is significant and significant.”

“In addition, the company did not conduct a thorough risk assessment of the trucker’s driving skills,” the ministry’s report says.

“The company’s failure to identify, properly train, and supervise its drivers is indicative of a systemic failure to recognize the serious and widespread problem of safety hazards in the transportation industry.”
