fortunately i have had the opportunity to haul/work around and with the driver in the yellow truck you mention. i do agree sum of the trucks do travel faster than some others, but i honestly feel assured enuff to say this. you take your personal vehicle as it sets rite now, and his yellow truck ,set them together and have each inspected and i guarantee there will be as many ,if not more issues needing fixed on your vehicle than on his truck.he takes great pride in his equipment and great care of it because unlike you seem to understand ,he knows even his own family travels these roads ever day and he not only wants to provide for them but also assure there safty as well. and outta curiosity i would just love for you mister LAW to compare your driving record and his and see jus who stands where,and be warned his record is gonna be extremely hard to be beaten,good luck. ohh and for your information. its state law that each driver be tested immediately following an on duty accident when holding a cdl license. shame these fine schools we have in this county failed so badly to educate these wonderful artists we have here in west virginia, i mean afterall why coudnt they had learnt you people more than drawing checks or selling prescriptions

In response to "wannaaccee". I totally agree with what you have said here.Thank God this wasn't worse than it was. But you people sitting behind a computer all day with nothing to do but gossip is pure bullsh*t. You obviously don't work but you claim to know everything. Stop and look @ the real picture here: These were two hard working people just out there trying to make a living (and pay your monthly check by the way)when they had an "accident". If you would get out of the house and get a job @ a life you wouldn't have time to worry about everybody else's business.Oh by the way, next time you get ready to go to Walmart to spend that check that these truck drivers sent you, have your car inspected first.

Yeah Right, My car is 2011 model. That's not the point. I don't drive like my life depends on getting one more load of coal.

they need to keep the coal trucks off the road when buses are running with kids on board. they used to not run when buses were running. i know it will only keep kids and bus driers safe. then in their down time check the trucks out. i know this is only temporary fix but what if that bus was loaded with kids. so i believe hampden coal goes back to not running when buses are running. cause ya know what this wreck has caused DOT,COPS STOPPING THE TRUCKS ETC. so lets no stir this hornets nest up any more

the drivers that get paid by the load would smother out if they had to park for a couple hours, why dont the rich truck owners pay their drivers by the hour this would slow everyone down.. maybe the labor board should be brought in and check this aspect of the problem out.

do you know how many hours a truck driver works a day? usually 12 hours a day six days a week. maybe that needs regulated. do you know how hard they are pushed to haul another load?? quit time is when the mine owner says to quit. do you know what the word accident means? heres an idea look it up since you have so mch time. then try workin 72 hours a week to make a living.

Trucks not running while the buses are, will not prevent an accident. That is why it is called an accident, you have no control over it. If you had paid attention, this accident occured after the buses had already ran the last run for grade school. Im not sure where the bus was going or if she lives the way she was traveling or going to bus garage, who knows, but she was empty. Everyone wants to lay blame and sue, sue, sue. How many people get killed on their way to or from work, not by trucks or buses? How many druggies do u have to run off the side of the road for because their too high to know what side to drive on. Now there is a big problem, why not get the drunks and druggies of the roads instead of bothering the working man. Put your time and energy into a real problem, get the druggies off the road.

Very well said. Put your energy into something productive , like A JOB, then you will know what the life of a working man ( or woman ) is like.

I understand what happen was a accident, however I strongly believe that every CDL driver that is on the main road should be paid by the hour, it would keep them at speed limit (or under). I know accidents happen reguardless, but when there is a big truck involved its usually not a good outcome. That way if the truck was going the speedlimit or under, it would have time to react and possibly stop if needed.And not every truck speeds just certain ones, but it only takes one. truckers have a very hard job they should be paid by the hour anyway,i feel sorry for the ones u see broke down on the side of the road knowing that it is hurting there payday for something they cant control.

No way theses coal trucks are legal and they are always overloaded Look at Tanners trucks how shabby looking, no wonder the steering went out, and all the other trucks look better , they clear about 500.00 a day (per truck) so they need to be updated, instead of the owner living high on the hog.

The trucks are not overloaded. They have scales and cameras on the scales so they cant pull their front wheels off the scales so they weigh less. They are some trucks that need to be updated, but I do now the when ps pulls them over they thoroughly check out everything and will cite them for whatever they see unfit or unsafe. I have seen them redtag them and make them leave them sitting on the side of the road. The local tandems are not that bad of a problem, its the out of state and the 18-wheelers that fly through here. That is where I think public service should bust them. Sartin has some of the worst drivers, several complaints and never do they do anything about them.

Yes, go ahead stop the trucks from running and the mines will shut down then there want be that many kids left there to go to school just about everybody has left there now. So, go ahead run the rest out of there and maybe all the welfares and the rest that are not working will be happy.

I don't need to take over an operation, I already have one. And it takes more than no time at all to start clearing money on these trucks. People do not realize how much it cost to run a truck. Believe me, its not a get rich quick scheme.

Yeah and your Republican buddies are getting rid of what Unions we have left. The only rights we have in the work place. When they are all gone you will be working 100 hours a week for much less. No vacations, no sickleave, no health care, no pride, no happiness. Just like starving people in a third world countries. BTW Did you see the program on tv the other night?..COAL... Man is that ever a SCABBY Punch Hole of a place to work. Union men would never be treated like a bunch of worthless piece of shits. the way they are treated. Dumbass Republicans...Go ahead vote all your rights away. You young guys didn't have to fight for them anyway.....WAKE UP AMERICA...
