FMCSA Orders Minnesota Bus Charter Company to Cease Carrying Passengers

The DOT agency reported that its safety investigators found the company failed to ensure that its buses were systematically inspected, repaired, and maintained.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced it has ordered Lakeville, Minn.-based On Eagles Wings Charters, Inc., USDOT No. 1100785, to immediately cease all passenger transportation operations. Safety investigators found that the company failed to ensure its buses were systematically inspected, repaired, and maintained: Four of the five motorcoaches they inspected were ordered out-of-service for serious safety defects with 40 violations recorded for them, including inoperative brakes and broken frame rails. The fifth bus was cited for inoperative brakes on one axle, multiple air leaks in the braking system, and a damaged windshield.

"Safety is our highest priority, and we will continue to insist that bus and truck companies also put safety of the motoring public first and foremost," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "Companies that choose to disregard vital safety regulations and put innocent lives at needless risk will be prohibited from operating on our highways and roads."
