Do you know what type of driver you will be getting before you enter an Uber vehicle? A man accused of hitting and killing a high school football coach on the Capital Beltway last summer while driving a box truck later drove for Uber after that deadly crash. Carlos Alberto Garcia, 42, killed 52-year-old Leonard Schultz in June 2017 when the box truck he was driving drifted into the median area at the split of westbound I-495 and I-95 South/I-495/I-395 North in Springfield and struck him, according to the VSP.
Garcia was initially charged with reckless driving after the crash, but federal authorities pulled his license to operate a commercial vehicle after discovering it was his second crash in less than 24 hours. This type of situation is devastating to imagine.
