Kinda make you wonder, was the man walking in the roadway or did the trooper leave the road and strike him?

Two state troops come to uk last night and told us that Charlie was not in the wrong. But they never said anything bout the officer.

They also told us he was wearing a white shirt and blue jeans and white shoes. I don't see how he didn't see him. Now I don't know what's going to happen to him and our child might not ever know the dad he was.

I guess this may have been one of the many times officers drive like a bat out of hell without lights or sirens.

Did the law firm of Isaac and Isaac show up. You may need the "Heavy Hitter". Sovereign Immunity applies.

You all have no repspect for anyone do you. Your the type of person that I'd like to punch in the face. He's fighting for his life and you have to make such a ass hole remark. Grow up a little , really now I bet if it was your family you'd be very upset now wouldn't you. So now if you don't have nothing to say don't say anything.

Listen Nikki, some people just want to get a rise out of people. It isn't right at all and you have every right to be angry. I hope your guy will be ok. I am sure the trooper feels terrible about this too. They are human like everyone else. I sure hope he has a speedy recovery. Best wishes.

I'm sorry if you took my comment as bad. I hope he recovers quickly and with little pain. I was just pointing out that cops readily break the laws they are intended to uphold. Ex. Speeding, using cell phones while driving, etc. if this was the case they will sweep it under the rug to protect the cop.

That said, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

it is very very hard to see pedestrians out there because it is in the county and not lit. several times I've had to swerve to avoid folks at the last moment. please be careful if you are walking in this area. praying for this young man and the trooper. saw the trooper afterwards and he was visibly shaken.

Sounds like to me that you qualify as an expert. Why don't you get a job an an instructor at the police academy?

THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR WHY THIS HAS HAPPENED. LIGHTING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. THEY WERE NEXT TO A GAS STATION AND NEIGHBORHOODS AND THERE IS DECENT LIGHTING OUT THERE. HE WAS ALSO WEARINFG WHITE AND WALKING WHERE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO. OBVIOUSLY THE COP WAS DRIVING TOO FAST OR WAS DISTRACTED AND THERES NO EXCUSE FOR IT! AS YOU READ IN THE ARTICLE IT SAYS HE WAS RESPONDING TO A NON EMERGENCY CALL...
IF U HIT SOMEBODY SO HARD YOU DISLOCATE/BREAK THERE LEGS AND CAUSE THEM TO HAVE FLUID ON THIER BRAIN AND GO INTO A COMA, HIT HIM HARD ENOUGH TO SEND HIM FLYING INTO A FIELD THEN HE WAS SPEEDING.THE COP NEEDS TO LOSE HIS BADGE ANG GET LOST HIMSELF OR ALL HELLS GONNA BREAK LOOSE EVERYBODY IS GONNA HATE THAT FUCKING PIG MORE THAN THE OTHERS AND THERE IS NO REASON THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO CHARLIE. IM SORRY IF I OFFENDED ANYONE BUT ITS REDICULOUS HE HAS A BABY GIRL N A WOMAN! NIKKI~ KEEP UR HEAD UP GIRL U KNOW CHARLIE WILL GET THROUGH THIS HES A TOUGH GUY!:) MY PRAYERS GO TO YOU ALL! IM SORRY THIS HAPPENED.

@wow... I'm no expert, but any citizen driving down the road can see evidence of what I described. As for the police academy, who would want to train cops? It's funny though, I am qualified, in that I am a special education teacher, no joke!

I didn't say he did it on purpose. But he had to have been distracted or speeding for it to have happened in this situation. And I'm definitely not a redneck or an idiot. So before you twist what people say read it and understand it dumbfuck.

Pedestrians are supposed to walk on the left side of the road, AGAINST traffic. This man was walking on the right side, on a road with no shoulder, in the dark. I'm not saying he should have gotten hit, but it's no surprise.

you can tell you have never been down thru there in the dark. there is no good light where he got hit. the cop was not speeding like i said before i was in front of him and i was running 50 mph and he was not gaining on me. that guy was on the wrong side of the road in a poor lit curve in the dark wearing dark cloths dont blame the cop wasnt his fault.

thats a bunch of bull, i was right in front of the trooper that hit him i almost hit him myself. he was in that curve by the indian store he was wearing a dark shirt and kentucky blue shorts walking in the road. i barely missed him. why was he in the road and he didnt even flinch when i almost hit him. the trooper did nothing wrong he never left the road that guy was out in the road in the dark very stupid and very sad. ive contacted the state police and given the detective the information they need so the officer involved is not listed at fault.
first, i never said that it was anyones fault. but let me say this captain lisa rudzinski came up to uk and told us that charlie was not on the road. and so she told us he was in bright clothes. so i dont care what you have to say. thanks and good bye=)
