Lynnway Auto Auction Cited For 2 Serious Violations In The Past


LOWELL GENERAL HOSPITAL. LIVE IN BURLINGTON LOUISA MOLLER WBZ NEWS. THANK YOU. THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME THAT A CRASH HAS HAPPENED AT AN AUTO AUCTION. BACK IN 2015 EIGHT PEOPLE WERE HURT WHEN A DRIVER CRASHED THROUGH A CROWD IN FRAMINGHAM. THIS IS THE VIDEO FROM THAT INCIDENT. RYAN KATH HERE WITH A LOOK AT THE SAFETY QUESTIONS PEOPLE ARE RAISING. CRASHES LIKE THIS HAVE HAPPENED ACROSS THE COUNTRY. JUST LAST YEAR A NATIONAL AUTO AUCTION GROUP STARTED OFFERING SAFETY TRAINING BECAUSE OF HOW DANGEROUS THESE CROWDED EVENTS CAN BE. THERE ARE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS TONIGHT, LIKE WAS THERE A MECHANICAL FAILURE WITH THE VEHICLE? AN AUTO SAFETY EXPERT SAYS JEEP GRAND CHEROKEES HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT UNINTENDED ACCELERATION. AUTHORITIES DESCRIBED A SCENE WHERE CUSTOMERS ARE WALKING ACROSS LANES OF TRAFFIC AS THESE CARS MOVE BY. AN ATTORNEY WE INTERVIEWED WONDERS IF SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE. AS WE’VE SEEN THESE INCIDENCES, HIGHEN THE LIST SHOULD BE — HIGH ON THE LET’S SHOULD BE PROTECTING THE PUBLIC, MAKE A PROTECTED ZONE WHERE THE PUBLIC CAN STAND. WE DON’T LET PEDESTRIANS WALK IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC AND NEITHER SHOULD WE LET THEM APPROACH VEHICLES MOVING BY AT ANY RATE OF SPEED. THE I-TEAM FOUND A SHORT LIST OF FEDERAL SAFETY PROBLEMS INCLUDING ONE SERIOUS VIOLATION IN 2014. IN THAT CASE, OSHA CITED THE BUSINESS FOR NOT PUTTING THE PROPER SAFETY MEASURES IN PLACE TO PROTECT EMPLOYEES FROM MOVING CARS WHILE PERFORMING MAINTENANCE.
