News Channel 5 Nashville reports:
- NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Following a truck inspection, the driver of a tractor trailer carrying horses that buckled on a local interstate, causing one of the horses to be put down, has been issued several misdemeanor citations.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol cited 42-year-old Scott E. York for operating a commercial vehicle without a commercial driver license (CDL), no commercial tag, log book violation, brake violation, defective tire and unsafe operations.
York was driving the trailer carrying 37 horses from Three Angels Farm to Texas when it buckled on its own.
Horses surviving the crash were transferred to another trailer and later continued on their journey to slaughter.

[…] time since January, a truck from Dorian Ayache’s Three Angels Farms was involved in a major accident on an interstate highway. The 53’ trailer broke in half on I24 just outside of Nashville less […]
No CDL? Why wasn’t he arrested? “Exdriver” you should be advocating legislature HR2966 & S1176 vigorously to be forgiven for your sins.
Why isn’t something being done about THREE ANGELS FARM!!!
I agree Amanda G. ‘Why ALL these ‘animal’ transport trucks are not ‘pulled over’….& from that think of all the ‘fines/$$$$ these counties could make because iF that truck driver isn’t paying then ‘his employer’ MUST!! Also, it gets the truck driver who shouldn’t be driving OFF the road (jailed if caught again) as well the deplorable ‘tractor-trailer OFF THE ROAD, with a HUGE fine to get it back! Oh the money they could make from this disgusting horse slaughter business. As well, do ‘they’ wait until one of these trucks KILLS an innocent human, never mind the innocent horse?
ANYTHING UNTIL THOSE BORDERS ARE CLOSED! ??
I keep wondering about that myself, Lana. The pros are always going on about all the laws that are on the books to protect the horses, blah, BLAH. Laws that are not enforced don’t do any more good than if they didn’t exist. Laws without enforcement are pretty useless.
PLEASE CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND ASK THEM TO SUPPORT HR 2966 AND S1176 AND PASS THE AMERICAN HORSE PROTECTION ACT
I used to drive for Dorian A. I did so for several months. The thing people fail to realize when condemning the drivers is that not all of us are the heartless cruel people you imagine. We have families to feed and if we quit he just hires new drivers. Dorian treats his drivers the same as the horses. That’s one of many reasons why I left. Yes, its a bad thing he’s doing, yes he should be stopped. But you are condemning the wrong person by condemning all the drivers. I have a cdl and all legit documents. As do most. The driver who wrecked however should have never been in the truck to begin with. The,trailer was not roadworthy and dorian new that.
Dear Exdriver , I am happy you have found other means for support for your family, I feel there are many ways to earn a living, that one wouldnt be a choice i would consider,…. i have such passion and respect for the horse beauties that we are given , they are certainly a gift i could never condone that type of employment !!!!! I am sure you are a wonderful person and i am happy that you have found other employment…………………….. Knowing what you now know , I am also hoping that you will become a advocate for our horses………….
As the wife of a truck driver I know there are PLENTY of other CDL jobs out there… Was this job really worth it? With crappy equipment that doesn’t pass inspections, a slave driver for an employer and the fact that you are hauling an overcrowded trailer full of abused and neglected horses to their deaths…I think if I were you I’d help aid in spreading around word NOT to work for this employer as those who work for him obviously have the chance of losing their CDL or lumping up a big bunch of fines. For a trucking job???? Not worth your life, the horses or the others that happen to be on the road.
Well, now that you have another job, why aren’t you outing this scum? Why aren’t you screaming all this to the media and your legislators? This is NOT just about horses either. What about public safety?
I am truly sorry, but if you know all this and do nothing – my opinion of you will stay the same. Keeping quiet is aiding and abetting.
“If enough good men do nothing…..”
I was sick after I heard about the crash…”three angel farms”…sounds like heaven doesn’t it?
I sent emails to all the tip lines at channel 5 and the newspaper…I couldn’t stand the generic reporting…just a “horse trailer going to Texas…”
I went online here and saw the comments about 3 angels and Dorian A. I told the news stations that he has a history and that people will be outraged when they hear where the horses are really going. The one euthanized was the lucky one…did you see the poor one that couldn’t transfer to the new trailer??
I’m going to make it my new ambition to make his life miserable…
What he doesn’t want is publicity and I intend to make his life as public as possible…maybe a day of picketing and most certainly online exposure.
My next email is to the Nashville police to check HIS history of hiring unlicensed drivers for HIS profit and then the mayor and governor.
IF CONGRESS OR THE SENATE WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO STOP THIS BRUTAL DESTRUCTION OF OUR WILD HORSES/BURROR OR ALL HORSES THEN DON’T VOTE FOR ANY SENATOR OR CONGRESSMAN THAT IS IN OFFICE NOW IF HE OR SHE IS NOT WORKING TO HELP THE HORSES. MAKE IT KNOWN TO NEW SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN WHAT WE EXPECT OF THEM.
PEGGY ,RIGHT ON ALL COUNTS WORTHLESS PIECES OF HUMAN CRAP…………………
Once again Dorian Ayache hopefully is doomed to hell along with all of his flunkies I live in Tn. and actually called this piece of dirt trying to buy the last load of horses only to be lied to….When is the law going to do their job and get these pieces of shit off the streets….The helpless animals have to suffer at the hands of these pieces of crap…Low life scum…..I even sent Dorian a sympathy card for all of the horses that are losing there lives at the hands of his evil nature along with gruesome photos of horses being slaughtered many because of him….I’m sure it didn’t even phase such a worthless piece of dirt…I pray like I’m sure so many do that he get’s his and the sooner the better..what a waste of oxygen to be labeled any form of human being…I shed tears often and pray many times a day that this madness end for these beautiful horses and they may never have to worry about slaughter again…Please I ask that everyone take a stand to help protect these innocent victims and punish those that take part in this from kill buyers,to the transporters to the ones that slaughter, and those that eat our precious four-legged friends!
How very sad this truly is, I am sure that another type of intervention was made here for the Horses, no body involved with slaughter gets it do they, do they literally need to be slap in the back of their head?????????
