Federal documents highlighted in a 9NEWS investigation show Caminantes Trucking has a history of allowing drivers on the road without valid licenses.

WELD COUNTY, Colo. — Nearly eight months after a truck driver slammed into a car on Interstate 25, killing a family, the company that put the driver on the road without a proper license is losing its primary customer.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) now says it’s in the process of terminating its contract with the trucking company, which has been involved in two fatal crashes in the past two years.

“We have issued a contract termination notice to Caminante Trucking, our relationship will end within the next two weeks,” USPS said in a statement.

The termination of the contract comes after a 9NEWS investigation into the safety record of Caminantes Trucking. Federal records show Caminantes has a history of allowing drivers on the road without valid commercial driver’s licenses. In addition, six people have died in crashes involving Caminantes trucks in the past two years.
