FMCSA Shuts Down Trucker Who Was Drunk at Time of Crash Then Left the Scene

Washington D.C. – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has shut down a trucker who was allegedly drunk when he left the scene of a crash last month.

In a release, the Agency said New York-licensed truck driver Bobir M. Kholmurodov has been declared an “imminent hazard to public safety” and was ordered not to operate any commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in interstate commerce.




 

Kholmurodov was served the federal order on September 21, 2021, the FMCSA indicated.

The order stems from a crash that occurred on August 4, in Courtland Township, Kent County, MI.

According to Michigan State Police (MSP) investigators, Kholmurodov was operating a big rig at approximately 11:18 a.m. when he failed to stop at a red light, colliding into an SUV.

Kholmurodov then left the scene of the crash, but was apprehended later that day by MSP in Montcalm County.




 

A blood alcohol test revealed Kholmurodov possessed a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.17 far surpassing the .04 legal limit for commercially-licensed heavy duty truck drivers.
