    Accident with a truck hauling porta-potties in a F350 7500lb Delivery/service truck. So I think they are DOT required for hazmat requirements.

    Driver doesn’t appear to have CDL and therefore not insured in fleet.

    Rear ended at Approx 60mph in a 45mph Didn’t even try to brake not paying attention at all.

    should he be CDL? How can I tell of his license is CDL from police report?

    I don’t think at that weight they require CDL endorsement.

    Why do you ask?

    At minimum he would need a class c with hazmat. Unless they are brand new never used before porta potties.
    My best friends wife drives those around.
    You can't tell from a average police report. But you should be able to tell from the ticket the driver got.
    Glad your alive thou.
     
    CO Elk Thanks this.
