Former Trucker Pleads Guilty to Falsifying Logbooks in Crash That Claimed Two Lives
Stanley N. Waddy, Jr., a former commercial truck driver for Tapscott Trucking in Thornburg, VA, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, PA, to ten counts of making false statements to DOT for falsifying his driver logbook to hide how long he had been driving without rest. On December 12, 2001, Waddy, after using marijuana, caused a six-vehicle crash that killed two people in the Ridley Township of Delaware County, PA. He was convicted on state charges related to the fatal crash and completed serving his jail time in December 2003. Waddy is scheduled to be sentenced in April on the Federal charges.
