One of my drivers was in a minor accident. There was no injuries or citations, but the truck was towed. Do I need to send him for a Post-Accident test?
Under FMCSA rules, in an accident where there is disabling damage to a motor vehicle or bodily injury with immediate medical treatment away from the scene, the driver is subject to Post-Accident testing only if he receives a citation. Post-Accident testing must always be conducted in the event of a human fatality. Employers with a general drug and alcohol policy that requires post-incident testing may conduct a non-Federal test.
