Trucker on Trial for Four Motorcycle Deaths and a DWI

Todd Faasse told Arizona Central that he has looked death in the face. In a sense he has. Faasse was riding his motorcycle with the Phoenix M.C. Cruisers, a motorcycle club in the area when a 23,000 pound truck came barreling down the road. The ruthless vehicle was shoveling away all the motorcyclists in its way as Faasse turned around. Seconds later, he was hurdling through the air. He landed on the asphalt with a dislocated neck, broken back, concussion and cracked ribs. While Faasse was able to survive the violent blow, four other motorcyclists on the ride weren't so lucky. They perished at the scene, while three others were critically injured. The driver of the runaway truck is now on trial for four counts of manslaughter, five counts of aggravated assault and four counts of endangerment.

Most of the men and women who died perished because they were caught underneath the big rig, where their motorcycles exploded. The trucker is suspected of driving while intoxicated, which is what perpetrated his reckless driving on the road. He tested positive for methamphetamines after the accident. A sheriff who testified on the case says that the trucker was not able to complete field sobriety tests and had squinted eyes and fidgety hands when he was found. Yet the truck driver's lawyer argued that all of these symptoms were simply shock and nervousness form the gruesome accident that had just occurred. Also, while driving, the trucker's lawyer claims that a fire extinguisher exploded in the driver's face. The motorist also claims that the brakes on his car malfunctioned. The trial is still ongoing, but shows that there is certainly a danger to driving under the influence of drugs. If you are under trial for driving while intoxicated, talk to a DUI attorney in your area today.
