Well, it happened last February, thought it would be a short but eye opening read on how important the driver evaluation process is. Although many factors outside our control as medical examiners (driver fatigue, distraction, error due to road, weather conditions, equipment or mechanical failure etc.) can come into play in accidents, always doing a careful and thorough DOT physical examination can go a long way in helping to rule out medical conditions (physical or mental) or possible prescribed and OTC drug use that may cause gradual or sudden incapacitation in a driver. Hats off to those cadets for their swift thinking. Coast Guard cadets help avert Connecticut bus accident – WFSB 3 Connecticut.
