    FAIRFIELD (CBS13) - Deputies say a man stole a vehicle just 13 minutes after he was released from criminal custody in Napa County Friday. The Napa County Police Department said 35-year-old Trevor Anderson was in custody for vehicle theft, burglary, identity theft, and drug-related charges by the Napa County Sheriff’s Office. He was released Friday under the emergency zero bail order, but police say almost immediately after his release, Anderson stole a truck and led officers on a pursuit from Napa to Fairfield. Sheriff’s deputies deployed spike strips during the chase to flatten the truck’s tire, but Anderson reportedly drove...

    The Trump administration eased rules Thursday that limit working hours for truck drivers, and the changes brought immediate protests from labor and safety groups. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration extended the maximum working day for short-haul drivers from 12 hours to 14 hours and expanded how far they can drive in a day. The agency said this will let truckers make more deliveries. For long-haul drivers, the regulator will let work other than driving - such as loading or unloading, filling out paperwork, or communicating with an employer or customer - count toward a mandatory 30-minute break after eight...

    Thomas Ramirez, 39, a truck driver from Beaumont has spent the last month hauling cleaning supplies intended for hospitals in San Francisco and Sacramento from the Los Angeles and Inland Empire areas.

Despite the risk of exposure to the disease as well as their essential role in keeping the wheels of society turning, even garnering...

    A Chilean island resident was arrested on March 1 after his truck... crashed into one of the stone figures and badly damaged both it and the ahu, or platform, it was perched on. Local authorities believe that the accident was caused by brake failure that caused his truck to slide downhill. On the island, which is known as Hanga Roa by its native Rapa Nui people, the enormous stone heads called moai have long been a source of intrigue and wonder. In 2019, Jo Anne Van Tilburg, Director of the Easter Island Statue Project, told CNN Travel that bad tourist...

    A Silicon Valley startup has completed what appears to be the first commercial freight cross-country trip by an autonomous truck, which finished a 2,800-mile-run from Tulare, California to Quakertown, Pennsylvania for Land O’Lakes in under three days. The trip was smooth like butter, 40,000 pounds of it. Plus.ai, a 3-year-old company in Cupertino, announced the milestone Tuesday. A safety driver was aboard the autonomous semi, ready to take the wheel if needed, along with a safety engineer who observed how things were going. “We wanted to demonstrate the safety, reliability and maturity of our overall system,” said Shawn Kerrigan, co-founder...

    British police have said that all 39 people who were found dead in a truck in a UK industrial park on Wednesday were Chinese nationals. Their cause of death has yet to be established, the police added, as they “must undergo a full coroner’s process … before we move on to attempting to identify each individual within the trailer. This will be a substantial operation and, at this stage, we cannot estimate how long these procedures will take.” On Wednesday, 25-year-old Northern Irish truck driver, Morris Robinson, was arrested on suspicion of murder after a truck, originating from Northern Ireland,...

    At 87, Randall Pitman is driving a truck that's older than he is. But much like its owner, Pitman's beloved 1927 Ford Model T still has a lot of mileage left in it. This weekend, the pair will cover more than 600 kilometres winding from Pitman's South Ohio, N.S., home to a vintage truck show in Crapaud, P.E.I., that's expected to draw hundreds of vehicles and their admirers. This time, the truck will travel on a flatbed, but Pitman has driven it that far in years past. While he could find replacement parts and fix the antique himself if it...

    A Maryland man inspired by the Islamic State group plotted to ram a stolen U-Haul truck into as many pedestrians as possible at a popular convention and tourist destination just outside the nation's capital, federal prosecutors said Monday. The allegation was made in a court filing as prosecutors in Maryland urged a judge to keep the defendant, 28-year-old Rondell Henry, detained on a charge of driving a stolen vehicle across state lines. The police arrested him on March 28 after officers who discovered the stolen truck saw him leap over a security fence. The government's six-page detention motion describes Henry...

    Looking to replace my truck's tires. Background I inherited my truck from by brother-in-law who lifted a GMC Sierra 2500 HD. Tires that are currently equipped are 325-65-18. To replace the 4 tires, I am looking at about $1,400 out the door. Truck is now mostly city with the occational trail driving, no real off road. So I am happy with all terrain / mud and snow but narrower than 325. -IF- I can keep the cost of the replacement rims and tires below $300 combined ... I figure I would come out ahead.

    When Juwan Mack turned 21, one of the first things he did was carry out his dream. The South Carolina resident applied for, and received, his trucking license. “I remember as a kid always being at my grandma’s house. Her house was right next to a main highway,” Mack said. “So, I remember being on the side of the road and a truck would come by and I would pull my hand down for them to beep the horn…childhood dreams.” But Mack, now a truck driver for CCC Transportation, had to wait years for that dream to become a reality,...
