yes the truckers do think they can go fast through the lights, they don't even try to slow down, and it's 50 or 55 through there. Change the limit for trucks to 40 or less.

Not saying who is at fault but, I can say this until you pull a heavy load behind your truck and try to stop at that light don't judge. I pull a vey heavy load through there all the time and I know the speed limit. I go slower than the speed limit and still have run it twice. I have called the DOH about the light. It turns from green, to yellow, to red almost instantly. If you are in a car you may not notice. In addition, I have sat at the go mart side waiting to turn left almost 10 min. The light does not always work right. The light at U Save is worse!

Since you boys KNOW there is always danger present at these traffic lights then you truckers are knowingly driving too fast in these areas!!! You are at fault.

If you know this light is tricky you need to slow the crap down. Truckers always run their mouths on the cb's so you can tell each other.

Just to give everyone CORRECT information, the tractor-trailer did NOT stop at the red light. The car tried to speed up and move out of its way but didn't make it. The young boy in the back was wearing his seatbelt and had to be saved with the Jaws of Life. And the family is from Beckley. The boy, Christopher Hamrick is fighting for his life right now. Everyone should be praying for him.

Thank you for the up-date on this child. The family is in my prayers. The rest of these idiots have turned this topic into something it should NOT be! I believe it was started to find out if anyone was really injured and how bad. At this point, the child is he main concern, not poor drivers!

I agree with you! Plus the truckers need to be trained, if not already, when they see a red light in sight to go ahead and start slowing down immediately whether the light is red or green, SLOW DOWN! Special prayers to the family.

Good old America. Always someone else's fault. The driver of the car should be held responsible. Have proof it was the truckers fault. Was there a picture that showed the color of the light.

Does anyone know why the Dept of Highways will not change the flashing lights back the way they once were to alert you that the light is turning red? As many stop lights as there is on Rt 19 all the way through to Beckley, this could prevent a lot of accidents and then there would be NO reason for running a red light.
The DOT does not care about saving lives. All they are worried about is the money that can be made from traffic tickets. Instead of all these officers also worried about money. Both of them should put their little heads together and look for solutions. Greed that is what America is all about.

Praying for Christopher and the rest of the family. Everyone with all the negative comments need to grow up. For gods sake a child was injuried due to a truck driver going to fast and running a red light. Just please pray.

I personally know this truck driver and to let you know, he is a well known drug dealer/addict and has been known to use drugs while driving this truck and was probably on drugs at the time of this accident. But for those of you truck drivers on here talking about how hard it is to monover a truck and how many red lights you have ran....get of the f***ing road if you can't drive any better than that!! If you don't know how to control your rig that shows how incompitent you are!! I know MANY truck drivers and they KNOW HOW to control a truck because they aren't ignorent like you!!! So before you post such STUPIDITY next time, think about how IGNORANT this makes you sound and next time go to driving school.....Toys R U license aren't for truck drivers!!!! On a lighter note I have been praying for the boy and his family. This is so sad and my heart goes out to you.
