Darol W. Britt of Gray’s Creek, NC, was prohibited by a Georgia Superior Court judge in Camden County from driving commercial motor vehicles for 10 years in the State of Georgia and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and serve 10 years of probation. Britt pleaded no contest to reckless driving and causing serious injury by vehicle when the charter bus he was driving was involved in accident on I-95 in Georgia in April 2001. All 46 passengers were injured, including 12 school children. FMCSA is taking administrative action to suspend Britt’s commercial driver’s license on a national basis for 1 year.
