It was literally a buzz that began a lawsuit this week against Reinhart Foodservice and its carrier and driver.
According to Star Tribune, Todd Brinkhaus is suing after an accident last May that caused a four-vehicle pileup on I-35 and two fatalities, one being his wife.
Driver Jason Styrbicky was driving over the speed limit when he “failed to brake, causing a chain reaction crash that crushed two cars between that truck and another semitrailer carrying bees” (http://www.startribune.com/local/south/103678439.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUUsA).
Yes, bees. Seventeen million to be exact, which were then released into the air.
Besides Brinkhaus’ wife, another woman was killed after being crushed in the pileup.
The trucking company which started the accident is being hit with not “maintaining a reasonable distance,” failing to “drive a safe speed,” and driver fatigue, the site notes.
With the record of never encountering a full cargo loss and having a statistic of only 0.0005% in damage claims over the last year, the only buzz you’ll hear about Road Scholar Transport is our 10 million miles to a cure awareness program.
