BOLIVAR, W.Va. - An 89-year-old Fayetteville, Pa., man died, and his wife and a 59-year-old Hagerstown woman were injured in a two-car crash Thursday, West Virginia State Police in Charles Town, W.Va., said.

Julius Bernhardt was driving a black Nissan Sentra south on U.S. 340 at about 5 p.m. when he failed to stop for a traffic light at the intersection with Washington Street just outside Bolivar, police said.

The car struck a blue 1988 Oldsmobile Intrigue driven by Nancy Manuel, 59, of Hagerstown, who was attempting to make a left turn onto U.S. 340, police said.

Manuel, Bernhardt and Bernhardt's wife, 87-year-old Ethel Bernhardt, all were taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital, where Julius Bernhardt died a short time later.
