Adesh Deol Trucking remains grounded

Posted: May 1, 2018

EDMONTON, Alta. – The company that owns the truck involved in a fatal truck-bus crash in Humboldt, Sask., remains grounded by Alberta Transportation as a police investigation continues.

Calgary-based Adesh Deol Trucking has just one other truck, but its safety fitness certificate was suspended following the April 6 collision that killed 16.

“Alberta Transportation’s investigation of the commercial carrier involved in the Humboldt incident is ongoing,” said a ministry spokesman, although an assessment of National Safety Code (NSC) compliance has concluded.

“Our next step is to provide the NSC report and associated information to the RCMP. The RCMP will determine which details of the overall investigation to release, and when,” the spokesman said. “At present the carrier’s Safety Fitness Certificate remains suspended. Alberta Transportation will not lift the suspension or take further enforcement action until all active investigations involving the carrier are concluded.”
