Megaload Driver Cited For Inattentive Driving

The driver of a large load of oil refinery equipment that struck and damaged a van in northern Idaho has been cited for inattentive driving.

The collision on Dec. 6 near Moscow led the Idaho Transportation Department to suspend shipments of Imperial Oil equipment to an oil sands project in Canada.

ITD spokesman Adam Rush said the agency is awaiting an internal report from the hauling company, Mammoet, before the license will be considered for reinstatement.

Idaho State Police cited driver Vladimir Purgar of Calgary, Alberta after an investigation.

Van owner James Urquidez says he ducked when he saw the equipment was going to hit his van. He says his side window broke from the pressure and his windshield was crushed.
