Head-on crash in W.Va. injures three

November 30, 1999|By

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. ? A Kearneysville, W.Va., woman was flown to Winchester (Va.) Medical Center on Wednesday after the car she was driving on W.Va. 9 (Charles Town Road) was struck head-on by a motorist who witnesses say was passing vehicles in a no-passing zone, police said.

West Virginia State Police Trooper G.D. Simms believed the woman was in stable condition after being flown from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Simms could not immediately release her name or age, but believed she was the grandmother of a 10-year-old girl who was riding with her in a Buick Park Avenue.

The girl was treated at City Hospital in Martinsburg and released, Simms said.

A 26-year-old Winchester, Va., man believed to have caused the 5 p.m. accident initially was taken to City Hospital, then to Winchester Medical Center, Simms said.

He was westbound in a GMC Envoy and crossed the center line in the 700 block of the road and struck the four-door Buick sedan, which was eastbound, Simms said.

The man refused to give a statement to police, and Simms said he still was investigating the accident, which shut down the road.
