Road work steers drivers right into pothole on U.S. 22

Updated: Friday, May 16 2014, 06:42 PM EDT
WEIRTON, W.Va. -- Road work on U.S. 22 west has left drivers with few options and lots of problems.
Workers began repairing those potholes Friday, not too long after a woman who was driving down that road hit a pothole that left her with a flat tire.
This comes three weeks after workers began a road project that closed off one lane forcing driver's to hit these potholes.
While  repairs are underway, that doesn't stop the biggest problem for driver's -- the bill they're left to pay for.
"I wanted the state to pay for it but everybody that already commented on my Facebook status said it was a pain in the butt and I would have to turn it into my insurance and do a police report," driver Briana McBride said. "So I mean it would be nice if they fixed it because my rim is bent a little bit too."
In the meantime, West Virginia Highway officials said they understand the frustrations of the public concerning pot holes in the work zone on U.S. 22.
For the people who have had damage to their vehicles and wish to be compensated, contact the west Virginia court of claims at:
