...hey don't jump on me, I was just expressing my frustration/exasperation at the way those truckers drive. It's no secret they go full throttle wide open and to hell with anyone who dares try to use the same road as them.

I certainly didn't wish for anyone to die, if you will take the time to read my previous post concerning coal/gravel trucks. But if the driver of the truck was so close and going so fast that he couldn't stop for traffic in front of him, he WAS at fault. Just saying.

Leave your opinions to yourself. This isn't a debate and you have no clue what happened here. Prayers with the families

You must have been driving the car. Why else would you say the disrespectful things you said. You said it long before anyone mentioned somebody died.

OFF TOPIC - Why is it that whenever someone dies some silly jackass comes on here and talks sh!t about them or callously disrespects them or their families at the time ( usually at the worst time too, while grieving )?
It really shows what disrespectful, ignorant people are out there. It's bad enough most people on here don't have the fortitude to take any responsibility for what they say to start with but to come on here and bad mouth a dead person is just as low class and trashy as someone can get yet it happens every time someone dies. There's some real vermin out there apparently.

yah yah yah, it's ALWAYS the cars fault. If you lived on a coal haul road and saw them on a day-to-day basis driving like complete maniacs, you wouldn't be so quick to acquit the drivers and place blame on the rest of us. And until the investigation is complete, NO ONE knows where the fault lies...

i was there and the driver had stopped to help another driver & just pull back out on the road. the car with child pulled out in front of him. he missed the car and got hit by the 18 wheeler.

to wish wash this could of been your family. I've been with my old man for over 20 years and I know a lot of these drivers. you will never find a better group of people and it's people like you that judge just like now. the investigation is over and the fault lies with the woman in the car with the child not in a car seat.

the next time you go to post something put yourself in that person place and see if you see things the same.

you are one of these people that does no wrong but you are the one that drives like a maniac that you say they are doing.

Exactly. So take your own advice and shut the f up about it. Youre such a hypocrite to say no one knows where the fault lies but you blamed the truck immediately.

john 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”
