Penquis passengers claim agency’s driver caused 2020 crash

A guy and women of all ages declare that a driver for a Bangor social provider agency fell asleep when driving them to an appointment in Madison in early 2020, triggering a crash in which they ended up wounded.

Joyce Stubbs, 26, and Richard C. Morgan, 29, of Bangor sued Penquis CAP Inc. and the driver, Brandon Tatro, in Penobscot County Superior Courtroom on Friday.

The lawsuit statements that Tatro, 27, of Bangor fell asleep on Feb. 12, 2020, though driving the pair to Madison to stop by Stubbs’ son.

Tatro went off Interstate 95 South in Benton and down an embankment at about 11:33 a.m. even though traveling at about 70 mph. The 2013 Chevrolet flipped over and landed on its roof, according to the accident report submitted by the Maine Point out Police.

It is the next time this year that the nonprofit social company company that serves very low-money people of Penobscot, Piscataquis and Knox counties has been sued over a crash involving a person of its drivers.

Tatro was driving his individual car or truck but was contracted by Penquis to drive certified individuals to appointments, in accordance to the criticism, which also claims that the non-income was negligent in education motorists.
