Fatal crash in Ohio sparks three state investigation

Fatal crash in Ohio sparks three state investigation  story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A fatal truck accident that happened two weeks in Ohio prompted the I-Team to do a three-state investigation. 

This after we found the Michigan-based truck driver shouldn't have been behind the wheel of his truck when he killed a woman near Circleville, Ohio. 

Now the local company that employs the driver, Fleet Quest based in Grand Rapids, is under our microscope.

Executives at the Michigan Secretary of State's office tell us that 98 percent of the time, if you get a traffic ticket anywhere in the United States or in some parts of Canada, that information from where the ticket was given is going to be electronically sent to the Secretary of State here in Michigan. 

We are told it will be on your Michigan driving record, but we found the system failed miserably in this case.

Newschannel 3's Chief Investigative Reporter David Bailey took this case on and tells us how the system failed all of us in this Waste Watch report.
