#Greenline #Trolley Driver Held Accountable

Trolley driver Sydley Gardner has been taken off the job as investigations find decades of vehicle violations, and prohibitive speed as a factor in the Green Line derailment. The trolley is at Riverside station, and investigators say they found no mechanical problems, and are focusing their search on the driver, with his extensive violations history (seven speeding tickets, 19 moving violations. Six failure to stop.)

The driver derailed and hit a wall exiting the station.

Protocol for driver applications did not include Trolley driver’s driving history until after 2009. Passengers want the Green Line to go back and retroactively check Trolley drivers’ motor vehicle history.
