   Wiley Sanders Truck Lines has been charged in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles with three counts of willfully and recklessly transporting hazardous materials.
   According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General (DOT-OIG), Wiley Sanders transported more than 40,000 pounds of lead-contaminated plastic battery chips from a battery recycling facility in Vernon, Calif., in a semi-trailer truck without authorized packaging on three dates: Aug. 10, 2013; Nov. 1, 2013; and March 13, 2014. In total, the company allegedly transported 128,840 pounds of the hazmat, a byproduct of the battery recycling process.
   DOT-OIG is investigating the case with the Environmental Protection Agency-Criminal Investigation Division and the California Department of Toxic Substance.

There’s a lot more accidents out there happening as a result of the lack of infrastructure investment in this country.

U.S. beef exports stood at 105,241 metric tons in April, down 5% year-over-year, while the nation’s pork exports totaled 216,757 metric tons during the month, down 6% year-over-year, according to the U.S. Meat Export Federation.
