Reports from WSAZ NewsChannel 3 say that 911 dispatchers were alerted to the incident around 2 a.m., closing the highway at Exit 58C for nearly 7 hours as crews cleared the scene. Investigators reported that the car flipped and came to a rest upside down but no occupants were injured.
The vehicle also managed to avoid striking any other vehicles or pedestrians in the accident. It did knock over a light pole and scattered debris across I-64 but no others appear to have been involved. Investigators haven’t released any details on what may have been the reason behind the crash.
Even the most experienced drivers often cannot avoid being seriously injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver. If another drivers’ negligence causes your car accident, seek help from a West Virginia accident attorney.
