Truck driver faces 45 charges after 2021 crash into multiple vehicles and garage


The Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) announced that a truck driver is facing dozens of charges related to a June 2021 crash in a Nashville neighborhood.

Abdalla Arbo, a 41-year-old truck driver, was indicted by a grand jury on 45 counts, including 32 counts of forgery and multiple violations of motor carrier safety rules, according to a May 21 press release from the MNPD.


Other charges include two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by reckless driving and five counts of reckless endangerment by a motor vehicle.

According to police, on June 24, 2021, Arbo was driving a tractor-trailer at Elm Hill Pike and Wanda Drive when a Honda Accord turned right into the path of the tractor-trailer.

Arbo reportedly swerved to avoid a crash, but hit the Honda, a Ford F-150 pickup truck and a Ford Escape, then crashed into a residential yard and garage.

Arbo and three others were injured.

A months-long investigation by the Tennessee Highway Patrol and MNPD accident investigators found falsified logbooks and unreported brake problems with the Freightliner that Arbo operated.

Arbo is being held on $75,000 bond.
