Information from WSAZ NewsChannel 3 states that around 7 a.m. a BMW was traveling southbound on Greenbrier, near Yeager Airport, when the driver lost control. His vehicle crossed the median and struck a pickup truck head-on in the northbound lane.
Emergency crews arrived and transported both drivers to a local hospital for treatment for non-life threatening injuries. The drivers haven’t been identified and no word on the results of the investigation or any charges.
If another drivers’ negligence causes your car accident, seek help from a West Virginia accident attorney. Proving a claim of negligence in a personal injury case can be difficult without experienced legal help on your side. Remember you have the right to an attorney when seeking damages for an injury caused by a distracted or negligent driver.
