(DALLAS) -- DART released a statement Monday evening saying that the driver of the DART van that crashed into stopped traffic and caused a five-vehicle accident and massive traffic delays is no longer employed, ABC affiliate WFAA-TV reports.
The driver had been employed by Veolia Transportation, the company DART contracts for its paratransit van program. DART said in the statement that Veolia told them the investigation did not find evidence of a violation of the company's policies, such as cell phone or drug and alcohol use.
The company stated the driver "had a good safety record in his more than 11 years of service until this accident," but "safety must always be our highest priority."
