MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Federal officials have ordered Murfreesboro truck company Terri's Farm to cease all interstate transportation services.
According to a news release from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Terri's Farm is merely a reincarnation of horse transporter Three Angels Farms, which was shut down by the agency in June.
The closing of Three Angels came after investigators found multiple safety violations. They included using drivers who did not have commercial driver's licenses and not testing drivers for controlled substances.
Shortly before the shutdown, the farm had two accidents involving poorly maintained vehicles and fatigued or disqualified drivers, which resulted in the deaths of four horses.
Terri's Farm was operating the same vehicles, and maintaining the same operational and safety management structure as Three Angels Farms.
