Police cracking down on commercial trucks

MAHONING TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WKBN) – Authorities were cracking down Friday in the wake of a refrigerated truck with spoiled food that was pulled over in Lawrence County Wednesday night.

Mahoning Township Police Motor Carrier Enforcement Officer James Laurenza was back out on U.S. Route 422 Friday morning pulling over tractor trailers. Laurenza said he pulled over 16 commercial vehicles, but only about half a dozen of those were food delivery trucks.

He said he did not find anything alarming about any of the stops he made on Friday.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture continues to investigate New Yung Wah out of McKees Rocks after one of its drivers was found to be transporting spoiled meat and fish on Wednesday.
