Transportation company issued summonses after second safety complaint | News

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office issued Texas transportation company All Gas LLC two summonses in Leesburg on July 6 after the company received its second truck safety complaint in as many weeks.

Authorities said a tractor trailer traveling in the area of Harry Byrd Highway and White Gate Place around 6:41 a.m. had violated its hauling permit and was 52,800 pounds overweight.

Patrol deputies responded to the area after a caller stated that the vehicle in question “was creating sparks and now the back is on fire,” according to the July 9 LCSO incident report.

After deputies initiated a traffic stop, the patrol supervisor observed the truck and subsequently requested assistance from units with LCSO’s Motor Carrier Safety division.

The ensuing inspection found the tractor trailer’s front escort vehicle did not have a height pole, and that the tractor trailer did not have a proper rear escort vehicle.

Both of those deficiencies violated the truck’s hauling permit, which was itself not issued to All Gas LLC but rather to a different company, Florida-based KCE Transport Solutions, per the LCSO.

The hauling permit violation meant the transport vehicle was not permitted to carry such a heavy load, resulting in a weight violation.

The vehicle had two additional “out of service” safety violations in addition to the two LCSO-issued summons, according to officials.

Authorities said All Gas LLC was also responsible for a June 25 incident in Hillsboro, in which a truck became stuck in a roundabout and damaged a guardrail while hauling a large piece of equipment on eastbound Route 9.

The LCSO issued citations for that vehicle not having a Virginia Department of Transportation Highway Hauling Permit, being 59,300 pounds overweight and having improper brakes.
