A 19-year-old Hedgesville man injured in a Thursday, March 9, vehicle accident died Friday of his injuries at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

"He's going to be deeply missed by his family and the whole town of Hedgesville," Carrie Sloan, the mother of Anthony Sloan, said Saturday. "Everyone has been very supportive of us," she said.

Sloan said her son was injured in a 4:30 a.m. accident on Buttsmill Road in Hedgesville and was flown to Baltimore. Sloan said her son's vehicle ran off the road and struck a tree.


Anthony Sloan was driving home from his girlfriend's house to get ready to go to Occupational Health and Safety Administration classes he was taking for his job at Snyder Environmental. Sloan had worked for the Bardane, W.Va., company as a pipe-layer since he was 16, she said.

"He worked there with his father," Vincent, she said.

In addition to his parents, survivors include his younger sister, Brooke, a student at Hedgesville High, Carrie Sloan said.

Anthony Sloan was a 2005 graduate of Hedgesville High School. He played football as a freshman and wrestled as a junior in high school, his mother said.

"He earned Eagle Soaring Awards for achievement and he was on the honor roll" while in high school, Carrie Sloan said.

Carrie Sloan said the accident was investigated by the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office. The investigating officer was not available Saturday to provide further details on the accident.
