NBC29 is learning more about the fallout from the deadly crash between a garbage truck and an Amtrak train on January 31.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration launched an investigation on February 2. The feds found Time Disposal failed to implement an alcohol and/or drug testing program, hitting the trash-hauling company with a $7,660 fine.

The case closed on March 9, and was turned over to the National Transportation Safety Board.

The man who authorities believe was driving the garbage truck, 31-year-old Dana William Naylor Jr., is no longer employed by Time Disposal. He is charged with involuntary manslaughter and maiming while driving under the influence.

Twenty-eight-year-old Christopher Sachem Foley of Louisa was killed when the train collided with the garbage truck at the Lanetown Road crossing in Albemarle County.

Naylor and Dennis Eddy, also a Time Disposal employee, were also both injured in the crash.

The train was carrying Republican Party legislators, staff, and security from Washington D.C., to an annual retreat at the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

A motions hearing for Naylor is scheduled for December 3. A three-day trial is slated to get underway February 25, 2019.
