California-based trucker shut down after crashing into house

March 23, 2021

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration effectively shut down a California-based truck driver after he crashed into a house in Arizona, resulting in one fatality and two serious injuries.

FMCSA’s imminent hazard order says trucker Daniel Tobon, also known as Daniel Moran, was driving a tractor-trailer on Dec. 31, 2020, when he crashed into a house in Mesa, Arizona. He was exiting U.S. 60 at Crismon Road when the truck failed to stop at the off-ramp intersection, crossed over a center curb, struck a signal pole and crashed through a masonry block wall before hitting the front entrance of the residence and destroying the house.
