Coal Company Charged Indicted For Making Road Unsafe

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky coal company is facing
a charge of wanton endangerment over accusations that its workers
are creating dangerous driving conditions on a local road.

The indictment alleges employees of Frasure Creek Coal LLC's
mountaintop mining site in Lost Creek are putting too much water on
Kentucky Route 1146 in Perry County, making it muddy and dangerous.

Residents want the company to blacktop its haul road and then
put a tire pressure watcher at the end of the haul road so the
trucks' tires are clean when they drive onto the highway.
