    I am the youngest brother of Amy Seibert. All the people saying that Jeremy Seibert shoud, "rot in prison" or even trying to tell everyone what happened. You were not there in that car with me, my sister, my brother-in-law and my friend. First off, the lines where he was attempting to pass 1 VEHICLE. It was a truck hauling a trailor going under the speed limit becuase he was being cautious. So Jeremy decided to pass WITH CARE like the sign said. When the man on his motor cycle was visible, Jeremy drove completely off to the left side of the road. He was completely off the road when Kenneth mashed on his brakes and started fish tailing and when he had plenty of road to just keep driving now mind you he was illegal the entire time. He had no insurance on his bike. But putting that aside, there was no speeding involved and Jeremy did everything he could to avoid it. Amy, at the time, was pregnant with my nephew, Jeremy's son. He had no intentions of "driving crazy". I watched that man break down while his vitals were being taken and I've known him for about 4 years and never once has he cried until that day. He never wanted to drive again after that. Never once have i heard him brag about being alive. I've heard him say he was very happy that his wife and son were ok. I've heard him say how terrible he feels for Kenneth and his family. A man he never knew. This was a complete accident on both parts, but the law was not neglected by either party. Both driviers did what they could to avoid collision. I agree with the statement that something needs done about that road because this is not the first death on that road. And if there isnt anything done about it, it wont be the last either. So instead of trying to put an innocent man in prison they need to concentrate on making that road a better place to drive and know that it's alot safer. And before anyone thinks im being biased they need to remember that I was there in that car back seat passenger side and I saw the whole thing. If I thought Jeremy deserved to go to prison, I would be the first to say so.

    I was the front seat passenger in my husbands car that day. We were both terribly devastated about the accident. the only people that knows fully what happened was the people involved and the people on the road that day who saw. my husband was not speeding. yes he was trying to pass but all signs said pass with care and the road had the dashed lines in the middle that also indicated that it was a passing zone. my husband was trying to pass a vehicle infront of us who was going 15 miles per hour under the speed limit. he was clear. and then the motorcyclist also decided to pass the vehicle in fron of him at the same time and was speeding towards us. we couldn't get back into our lane because the car that was behind us had already pulled forward so we pulled off onto the left side of the road and by that time the motorcyclist paniced and slammed on his breaks and fishtailed into our car which was already off of the road. It was an unfortunate accident that happened that day and there is not a day that goes by that it doesnt play in my head over and over again. I'm so sorry for the family's loss and I'm not saying it was his or my husband fault but panic on both sides.

    I guess my question would be.........if this road is so dangerous, are people not intelligent enough to slow down? It's one thing to call out the governor and everyone else but individuals have to be accountable for themselves........

    Yet another fatality on the unfinished Rt. 35. Congressmen, Governor, Senators, state legislators, county commissioners, local hacks: how many more will have to die before government responds?

    A fair question, I'd say. In the meantime, we're one day closer to another fatality on West Virginia's Highway of Death.

  • Judge Jimmy

    I would like to add that this is the 2 lane part of Route 35. The most dangerous highway in WV.

  • Beekeeper

    I would like to see this case followed to see what the charges are, and if there are any penalties.
