Man in fatal I-10 accident identified as David Hammer, 64, of Texas  We warned the Governors Office of another loose trailer accident in Caddoo Lake a few weeks ago and got this letter!!!....Also see the violations on trailers in just a few hours over two years ago...they got so many letters from the owners of these dangerous trailers they never performed another safety inspection again!!!


We are ready to save the next life if only the Public Safety Officials in Louisiana care more about the life of Mr. Hammer than they do about your drinking way to much soda. Go to www.dangeroustrailers.org and know that your Government has decided to reject any safety with trailers. The House of Representatives tried to save this life but your Senate decided that Mr. Hammer's Life was worthless.


First the Accident a few weeks ago in Caddo Lake...

Two shaken up in four-vehicle accident on Caddo Lake Bridge

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Two people were taken to hospitals Sunday when a trailer that came loose from the SUV pulling it led to a four-vehicle accident on Caddo Lake Bridge. Neither suffered serious injury.

Caddo deputies say a Ford Expedition was heading south on the bridge about 2:30 p.m. when the trailer came loose. The trailer drifted into the northbound lane and ran into a BMW driven by Ronald Byrd, 81, of Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

The trailer continued moving and plowed head-on into a car following the BMW, a Dodge Ram driven by Jamarion Powell, 23, of Shreveport.

When Powell braked, a Toyota Camry driven by Christian Baker, 23, of Bossier City ran into the back of Powell's Ram.

Byrd was taken to North Caddo Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Powell, who mentioned back pain, was taken to LSU Medical Center.

Authorities cited the driver of the SUV pulling the trailer, Tony Coffman, 38, of Mooringsport, with "unsecure load," says Caddo Sheriff's Lt. Don Gibbs.




Now The Letter We Received....is this just antoher letter that is full of it....or are they going to prevent the next death?  Why is it so hard to save lives in America anymore?  Why does each and every State allow people to be killed by loose flying trailers and nobody understands why more than we do but yet they try and try to stop us.




NOW THE DEATH OF MR. HAMMER!!!!!

Man in fatal I-10 accident identified as David Hammer, 64, of Texas

The man who died on I-10 Friday afternoon after his pickup truck was hit by a runaway trailer has been identified by Louisiana State Police as 64-year-old David Hammer of League City, Texas.

The accident happened at about 3:15 p.m. on I-10 near the Bluff Road overpass in Ascension Parish. 

Another driver, identified by police as 35-year-old Michael B. Munson of Donaldsonville, was driving a 2001 Ford F-350 westbound and was towing an empty utility trailer. The trailer became loose and crossed onto the other side of the interstate, through an opening in the cable barriers and a guardrail in the median.

It then hit Hammer's F-150, which was headed eastbound, and he was killed in the crash, police said.

The crash forced the closure of lanes on both sides of the freeway for about three hours during the evening commute.

Troopers do not suspect either driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol, but have submitted toxicology samples to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab. Hammer was wearing his seatbelt.

It is not known why the trailer came loose, and the crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police Troop I issued 439 citations and recovered one stolen trailer during "Operation Trailer Hitch." "The operation targeted unsafe, unregistered, and stolen trailers," Trooper Stephen Hammons said.

State police started the operation after noticing an increase in the number of trailers with no lighting, improper equipment, no registration, and unsafe conditions. The Bureau of Investigations also reported to Troop I an increase in the number of stolen trailers in the area. "In an effort to make sure the motoring public was safe, and in an attempt to recover stolen property, troopers from Troop I, Transportation Environmental Safety Services (TESS), and the Insurance Fraud Unit looked for trailers with various violations," Hammons said.

During the last few months, troopers reported an increased number of trailers with no lighting, improper equipment, no registration, and unsafe conditions. Troop I also received reports from the Bureau of Investigations about an increased number in stolen trailers in the area. The operation began at 5:00 a.m., on August 9, 2011, and concluded this afternoon.

Of the 439 citations issued, more than 200 of them were violation citations. "A violation citation is a citation that does not have a fine associated with it but, requires the operator to fix the problems with the trailer and report back to State Police or the Office of Motor Vehicles to show compliance with the problems found with it," Hammons said.

Throughout the operation troopers issued the following citations: 219 violation citations, 45 registration violations, 40 equipment violations, 100 TESS violations, 18 other violations, 17 motor vehicle violations, 20 trailers towed and one stolen trailer.

While this operation has concluded, troopers and other law enforcement agencies will continue to look for unsafe, and unregistered trailers being operated on public roadways within our state, Hammons said. The purpose of "Operation Trailer Hitch" was to ensure public safety, raise public awareness, and recover stolen property.

State Police reminds the public that a trailer is considered a vehicle and is required to have a motor vehicle inspection sticker with it at all times. Anyone needing information about registering a trailer, having a trailer stamped or needing a physical inspection for a trailer or vehicle can call Troop I at 337-262-5880.
