NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO those trucks don't speed!!!!

Just imagine if that baby cracked open and exploded where it rolled!

Those houses and their occupants would be incinerated!

A 20 pound propane cylinder will level a HOUSE

A propand TANKER explosion will lever an entire NEIGHBORHOOD!

The fourth roll over accident on 250? Jeebus Marshal County, put a few more sheriffs out there for crying out loud!

They can blame a contractor all they want but in court they accept the responsibility regardless. That's just the way it works. You hired'em, you can fire'em.

Too many young tanker drivers with less experience on curvy road that shift the loads and the speed limit might need to be reduced until a fix if found for the safety of WV citizen. Maybe all of these need to have an escort to provide the necessary warning of trucks and control the speed limit of these trucks on curvy roads. Why no name or age of the truck drive in article?

Time for the WV Legislature to step up and protect the citizens of WV. Too many accidents like this that will turn out to be a major accident that will affect a whole city or town. Start using the State Police to enfore the speed limits on these back roads instead of using the force in and around cities.

The Limestone residents need someone in Charleston with clout that cares about them. Between their free meals they should call back home and ask the people who voted them into office about their needs and fears.

We are just SO BLESSED with all these natural gas liquids!

Meantime MARKWEST can't get their de-ethanizer to work right in Houston, PA and they continually dose the public with VOC's from huge black fireballs that can seen from over 10-miles away. Not to worry folks, just like Agent Orange & Secret Frack Fluids, this black smoke is completely safe! WHY? Because MARKWEST's McHale said so!

Who was the wiseman who said we are all part of a GRAND SHALE EXPERIMENT? Don't worry, be happy, and keep your medical insurance up to date!

ALL of the drivers are contract workers! Why does Williams always attempt to shift the blame and say "they are not OUR employees"?

Of course, the other side will argue that truck accidents didn't happen until drilling started.

It must be the fracking process that caused this accident!
