Goldstein Investigation: Sanitation Worker Who Crashed Truck In DUI Still On The Job


PUTIN INTERNATIONAL OUTRAGE AT HIS MISUNDERSTOOD COMMENTS ON RUSSIAN MEDDLING. PAT: THANKS DAVE BRYAN. TONIGHT AT DAVE GOLD SCENE INVESTIGATION, QUESTIONS BEING RAISED ABOUT A CITY EMPLOYEE WHO GOT HIS SECOND DUI AFTER CRASHING A CITY TRUCK. DAVID IS HERE WITH THE STORY. HE IS STILL ON THE JOB AND DRIVING THE TRUCK FOR THE CITY. THIS HAPPENED THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT WHILE THE EMPLOYEE WASN’T EVEN ON DUTY AND HE MAY NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THE TRUCK THE THREE MONTHS AFTER THE INCIDENT THE CITY HAS TAKEN NO ACTION. THIS IS WHAT’S LEFT OF THE TRUCK RENTED BY THE CITY OF L.A. THAT YOU PAY FOR. HOW DID IT HAPPEN? YOU HAVE IT DUI AND YOU FLIPPED ON THE FREEWAY. A SANITATION WORKER ADRIAN CORALLO’S FOOD NORMALLY DRIVES A SMALL GARBAGE TRUCK WAS CHARGED WITH DUI AFTER CRASHING HIS TRUCK ON THE FREEWAY AT 3:00 IN THE MORNING. CITY OFFICIALS SAY HIS NORMAL HOURS ARE 6:00 A.M. TO 2:30 IN THE AFTERNOON. DID YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO TAKE THAT TRUCK? HE WOULDN’T ANSWER. YOU CAN SEE WHAT’S LEFT OF HIS $50,000 TRUCK. WAS RENTED BY THE CITY OF L.A.. WE FOUND IT NOW IN A CITY SALVAGE YARD. THE CITY SEAL SEAL IS ATTACHED RIGHT OVER THE HERTZ LOGO. YOU CAN SEE THE AIRBAGS DEPLOYED , TIRE MISSING AND DAMAGED BEYOND REPAIR. SINCE THE CITY ENSURES TAXPAYERS WILL HAVE TO FOOT THE BILL AND REIMBURSE HERTZ. THE COST, $28,000. IT’S ONE OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AS FLEET BUT WE FOUND AN INVESTIGATION LAST EMPLOYEES ARE DRIVING RENTALS FOR THEIR OWN USE LIKE THIS MAN FRANCISCO PENA. CITY OFFICIALS SAY HE NO LONGER WORKS FOR THE CITY. IN HIS CASE THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED ON THE 5 FREEWAY IN APRIL. HE ALLEGEDLY FLIPPED THE TRUCK AND THEN SLAMMED INTO THE SAFETY BARRELS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. COURT RECORDS SHOW HE HAD A BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION THAT WAS .15% OR MORE. THAT’S ALMOST TWICE THE LEGAL LIMIT. HE IS DUE IN COURT NEXT MONTH TO ENTER A PLEA. IT’S NOT HIS FIRST DUI. HE IS CHARGED WITH DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL WITHIN 10 YEARS OF ANOTHER DUI OFFENSE. THAT WOULD HAPPEN IN 2012 BEFORE HE WORKED FOR THE CITY. THIS ONE OCCURRED THREE MONTHS AGO BUT GUESS WHAT? LAST WEEK WE SAW CORALLO’S IN A CITY SANITATION UNIFORM UNIFORM STILL ON THE JOB AND DRIVING TRUCKS. HE WOULDN’T ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS SO WE TRIED A SANITATION OFFICIAL. SANITATION CFO LISA MALLORY CONFIRMS HE IS STILL DRIVING TRUCKS AND SHE WOULDN’T SAY IF HE HAD PERMISSION TO BORROW THE DESTROYED TRUCK OVERNIGHT AND WOULDN’T SAY MUCH ELSE. IS HE UNDER INVESTIGATION? THAT’S A PERSONAL MATTER. THE REPORT ISSUED MUTED THE DEPARTMENT WAS LOOKING INTO AND DOESN’T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH HIM DRIVING TRUCKS FOR THE CITY WHILE AWAITING TRIAL ON THE SECOND DUI OFFENSE. WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES EMPLOYEE CAN TAKE A TRUCK, FLIP IT ON THE FREEWAY WITH THE .15 LOVE ALCOHOL CONTENT, SECOND DUI AND GO BACK TO WORK? OUR EMPLOYEES HAVE DUE PROCESS. POLITICAL WATCHDOG JIM HUMPHREY SAID CORALLO’S CONTINUING TO WORK COULD LEAD TO ANOTHER LAWSUIT IN THAT COULD END UP COSTING THE CITY AND TAXPAYERS BILLIONS. YOU HAVE A GUY DRIVING A CITY TRUCK AND GETTING INTO AN ACCIDENT HURTING SOMEBODY. ARE YOU GOING TO PAY TAXPAYERS BACK FOR THAT TRUCK? THE CITY ADDS THE DMV HASN’T TAKEN AWAY HIS LICENSE AND IS FREE TO DRIVE ANY CITY TRUCKS BUT SOME PEOPLE SAY THE VERY
