I can not imagine what is taking so long to get this mans body out of that creek. This is so sad especially for his family.

I can't imagine family members that have truck drivers in their family and waiting to see if it's their family member and waiting to see if he or she is alive..Prayers are needed for the driver..

Its US Xpress driver. My Hubby drives truck and he says he believes the driver lost control due to the big old chuck holes that are out there on 64.
My Sympathies go out to the family.
I know i dread when my hubby leaves i am so glad he calls home everyday to let me know he is safe.
I was complaining to him tonight as to why its taking so long.

Perhaps it's because the driver couldn't have picked a worse time to wreck with all the rain we had and the creek being up. And the creek is up.
Perhaps the cab is barely hangin to the chassis and has to be handled with kid gloves in order to keep it from breaking loose and floating downstream making a bad situation worse.
Perhaps it's a combination of both and a little extra time is better than having someone else get killed or hurt trying retrieve some one who is already dead.
All the guys and gals down there want to go home safely to their families when this over as well

It's pretty easy to armchair quarterback while sittin there behind your PC screen in the house where it's nice and warm.
Dont think so

The holes are along the Moores Ferry overpass. This driver wrecked between the the two Owingsville exits. All the holes are patched there and have been for some time.

I agree with you..The rescue people have a terrible job..Especially when it's so miserable cold out you can't feel your face..I pray for the rescue people and the truck driver..This kind of work takes time it's not something that can be rushed in made a mess of..

In my opinion,perhaps you are a nut.Lets get real here.NO one ever picks a place to have a fatal vehicle accident.It happened where it happened because it was an accident.Accidents just happen.If every body could pick their own spot to have an accident,well,YOU, would probably be out of a job.You need to get busy,there is work to do.

I'm quite sure "That's crap" meant it as a figure of speech. Rescue workers have a hard enough job without someone who just wants to argue making it worse. There's no sense in it and you know it because you only picked out the one little bit that you could twist out of his post to continue to argue.
There IS work to do... you volenteering?

No,I didn't twist a thing that you said.You are a rude and inconsiderate person to say what you did.Get real,how could anything talked about on Topix make a rescuers job any worse.I would hope that they are thicker skinned than that,in that line of work.Just maybe,that is what took so long to get it up out of water,to no avail.The driver is still missing and hasn't been found.

I watched a guy on the news, rescue his dog that had fallen through the ice in the middle of a lake. Come on guys, get your hindends in there and find that guys body. Only in Bath Co. Could something like this happen.

You need to read more and post less.
I didn't mean he literally picked a place to wreck, it was a figure of speech.
Yes it was an accident and he didn't pick it on purpose.
As for my job, I have nothing to do with any of it.
I merely posted a common sense look at the situation.
I'm sorry you couldn't comprehend it.
seriously

What kind of cold hearted person would blame the driver? I don't care if it's a figure of speech or if you work on the fire department orrescue squad or not; that man has a family at home that can read your rude comments.
I understand rescuing the body is hazardous, but isn't that what they sign on for? I mean, that's what they're there for, to do the dangerous jobs that us citizens can't risk our life to do.'PERHAPS' that man didn't die in the crash, PERHAPS air remained in his cab and he survived; PERHAPS because the rescuers used 'kid gloves' and didn't try to rescue him, the man died of hypothermia. I would hate to think that if I crash, the rescuers would take days to get to me because no one was willing to be a hero..
I pray for the man's family, as well as the rescuers; but it's just not right and I pray no one's family sees what you said.
Read slowly....
I DID NOT BLAME ANYONE!
My point was that of all the nights and all the places this could have happened, it happened in a very bad place at a very bad time because of the swollen creek due to the rain we've had.
Surely you can't be so foolish as to think my post meant anything else.

As for the family, I wish them the very best in their time of turmoil and hope they somehow find peace in all of this.

As for your comment about the hero bit, there's a big difference in being a hero and being a fool. I think your distinction of the two is highly skewed.
Either way, I'm done with this topic and you may think what you wish.
well

I'm sure the Bath County rescue squad did all they were trained to do. It's easy to get on here and supervise a rescue or recovery without knowing any details. I appreciate their dedication and service.
