James Goins was tragically killed in Davie, Florida Friday morning, when his motorcycle was split in two by a dump truck driven by James Mills, of Fort Lauderdale. So far, neither driver has been blamed for the crash by police.
However, the investigation is ongoing and presents one glaring piece of information that bothers me more than anything else: The maintenance history of the dump truck.
According to Capt. Dale Engle of the Davie Police Department, the dump truck was not safe for public roads and “had problems before the crash.” As a result, police decided to “deadline” the truck and take it off the roadways.
