I knew Chris well. I worked my first job with him at WC Boshers Appliances in mech. He was a hard working good hearted man and a great friend and coworker while i was there. My heart and prayers go out to his wife and family

Very sad for Mr. Neagle and his wife and family.
Very sad for the truck driver.
If the car didn't give a turn signal,
which we really don't know, it may or may not
be solely the truck drivers fault.
Just a thought.
Prayers for the family.

Taking a left hand turn into driveway, the car was hit in the left lane on drivers side door. I believe the truck should have been on the right side of the road in the lane he was driving in, not on the left side!!!! He could have even went to the right into the ditch or something instead of T-boning my BROTHER!!!!!

I am very sorry for your loss... I am sorry to make the comment when I didn't know what really happened.
I also lost a family member, in a similar way, years ago.
Prayers for you and your family members and his wife.

I am so sorry for the family. I am also tired of so many wreckless low IQ truck drives tailgating and traveling in passing lanes

the trucks and traffic in general on rt 15 & 53 has increased many times over recent years. Tailgating, speeding, and unsafe passing on these often curvy, rolling roads by all types of vehicles is an everyday occurrence. Real economic development in Fluvanna is more tied to improving these roads than the current issue of providing water, important as it is to Louisa's economic growth. 4 lanes from Fredricksburg to Farmville' from rt 15 to Charlottesville. The traffic isn't gonna stop growing and more will hit with the tragedy of unsafe roads and unsafe driving.

And they want to allow Truckers from Mexico to drive on our streets with Mexicos inspection stickers. Hopefully teamsters will keep them out or this will be a everyday story

How close to W Bottom Rd? The speed limit at W Bottom Rd is 35, but goes back to 55 less than a mile from there. If the trucker was doing 55+ in the 35, it could be a sign of how much attention he was paying to the road.
