AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - State police’s Commercial Vehicle Division has cited MaineGeneral Medical Center for commercial vehicle violations involving what the hospital has called an “internal use” vehicle.

The Kennebec Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1SIDW56 ) Trooper Bernard Campbell cited the Augusta hospital for one count of failing to investigate a driver’s background and three counts of failing to require that drivers provide driver and vehicle inspection reports.

The first offense carries a maximum fine of more than $6,000. The latter violation charges a penalty of $700 for each count.

Marci Alexander, an attorney representing MaineGeneral, denied the accusations last week during a hearing.

District Attorney Maeghan Maloney says the vehicle transports people from the hospital to its parking lot and possibly delivers supplies to nursing homes.



A disposition conference is scheduled for July.
