I think I got lost...

                       I know I have been posting a lot about Texas Roadhouse lately on my Facebook, Twitter and other places I go to. I would like to explain why for people out there in space that do not know what is going on. 
                       Over a year ago, a good friend was killed in a auto accident. The manager of Texas Roadhouse in Springfield Ohio, Mr. David Wiley or Willey, was leaving work going home. (There are rumors that the employees there have a habit of drinking for free before they go home for the evening). On a video recorded from the Walmart Supercenter, police estimated his speed at 70mph or higher in a 35mph area. His large truck slammed into my friends small Neon, killing him instantly. (It was rumored that Mr. Wiley darted out around a car that was turning right into Walmart). Mr. Wiley was convicted of speeding and vehicular manslaughter. He still has his job as of 11/15/2012. I have a problem with a company who says they support Veterans, and the Wounded Warrior project but keep this man as an employee! My friend was a Iraq Vet, wounded while there! I feel that any company who will allow this kind of person to work for them is just horriable!! 
            Please do not patronize this place! Tell people, let everyone know that keeping an employee like this is just NOT acceptable!! Thank you!

  1. This is the full email convo I had with Texas Roadhouse recently. enjoy.
    *I and many other people are just disgusted by the fact you and your company are willing to just accept anything you are told as the truth. Police officers who are a neutral party have investigated, and found that the person you are protecting was at fault! This is just sad! Sad that a fairly well known company would accept people like this to give customer service to your customers. Knowing this, you must not care anything for your customers to put them in this kind of danger. No one wants to be around someone who is going to drive this recklessly and have no regard for human life. I am glad that I found this out before one of your employees injured my family or myself.

    Thanks, Kymberlei: I am comfortable with the facts. We will agree to disagree. Travis

    I was at the trial, the video showed Mr. Huggins DID NOT run a stop sign! Then on top of that information, Mr Willey's own truck computer showed that at the moment of impact he hit Mr. Huggins at 49mph. That is over the speed limit for that road! So please explain to me when he has been convicted of SPEEDING, and VEHICULAR HOMICIDE that you feel this is ok? You really need to find out the actual facts of the case and not just what your employee or his lawyer tells you.

    Ms. Truman: Thanks for contacting us regarding the accident that occurred last year in Springfield. There is nothing more sad and tragic than the loss of a life.
    Texas Roadhouse does in fact support and appreciate our military, both active and retired, and we are sorry that you do not share that opinion.
    Based on the facts from the trial, David Willey was not traveling 70 mph as alleged or driving in a reckless manner. He was traveling between 37 mph and 42 mph. He did collide with Mr. Huggins after Mr. Huggins ran a stop sign.
    We do not feel that our decision to keep David employed diminishes the life of Mr. Huggins or our support of the military. It was a tragic accident that has impacted the lives of many people.
    We can respect your decision not to support Texas Roadhouse, but we would ask that you please stop alleging or posting “rumors” about this case that are not fact.
    Thanks for reaching out to us and voicing your concern. Let me know if you have any more questions. Travis Doster

    I have a problem with your company as a whole. You show on your web site and your facebook page that you support the troops. I do not see how this is when your Springfield Ohio store employs a manager/partner, David Wiley. Mr. Wiley was just found GUILTY of vehicular manslaughter and speeding yesterday (11/15/2012) that resulted in the death of an Iraq Vet! Your manager was speeding (police figured 70mph in a 35mph) 2 blocks from your steakhouse. He proceeded to slam into a car killing a war vet on impact! I will tell everyone I know, strangers and everyone who reads my blog, yelp, facebook and twitter accounts how you employ people like this. Until this issue is corrected, I will make it my personal job to tell everyone who will listen to me. Please restore my faith in your bussines, DO NOT employ people who are criminals!!
    *@*@*@* It is just sad that a place like this would just take the criminals word for it as to what happened. Not the word of police officers, or video that was taken during the crime. After searching the net and finding out that this is not the first time that this company has made such horrific decisions about their policies and employees I am just glad that I and others I have spoken to will not EVER go there again.
    It is probably for the best, I do not want to be injured by one of there criminal employees anyway!

  2. I'm sure Texas Roadhouse is not suffering from you and your few friends.

    1. That may be true, but I have the right to tell everyone I meet what kind of people they have working for them. I doubt a lot of people want a murderer serving them food.

  3. THIS INCIDENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ROADHOUSE OR MILITARY VET. I AM MOST CERTAIN THAT NO ONE KNEW WHO WAS IN WHAT CAR WHEN THE ACCIDENT OCCURRED. FUNNY THEY ARE CALLED ACCIDENTS AND NOT ON PURPOSES WITH THE WAY YOU TALK ABOUT THINGS. ITS HORRIBLE THAT SOMEONE LOST THEIR LIFE BUT BY NO MEANS DOES ANYONE GET INTO A CAR HOPING TO HURT SOMEONE ELSE. I GUARANTEE YOU HAVE GONE OVER THE SPEED LIMIT MANY TIMES IN YOUR LIFE, DOES THAT MAKE YOU A POTENTIAL MURDERER? NO IT MAKES YOU HUMAN.

  4. Dave Willey is still employed by Texas Roadhouse. He now works at the Ashland, KY location. People like him are absolute scum. He is a hypocrite. I am in no way perfect, but this man is a joke. One of his managers at the Ashland location received the same charges in West Virginia. Seems like the Roadhouse just transfers their managers that are careless and kill people.

    1. Thank you for letting me know. I agree, no one is perfect (myself included) but operating a deadly machine, assuming that your ok to do so, and then not even worry if you kill someone makes them scum! From what I gathered about this horriable company, they will keep any employee, murderer or not, if they bring in money for them. That is all they care about, cash.
