Large pothole on Spring Valley road causing drivers problems in Wayne county

Posted: Updated:

A large pothole on Spring Valley road is causing problems for some people.

Lee Steele says he was on his way to work at the VA Hospital when his customized truck hit a pothole so hard he nearly drove off the road.

Steele says the hit bent and cracked his rim and ruined his driver's side tire.

He says he rarely drives the customized Dodge Dakota because it he takes it to car shows and events.

Steele says he's tried to get both Wayne and Huntington city departments to help pay for it, but they say that stretch of road isn't their responsibility.

"I mean there's 70 to 80-year-old men and women that served in our military that goes out there for health care and who's to say they don't they don't hit it and go in the creek you know, I mean its dangerous," Lee Steele of Huntington said.

Steele says he has contacted the department of Highways to seek action.
