Two-vehicle crash kills man

March 08, 2007

A sport utility vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer Wednesday on snow-covered U.S. 522 in Morgan County, W.Va., resulting in the death of the SUV driver, State Police Trooper J.C. McDonald said.

The crash occurred about 1 p.m. near the Virginia state line and appeared to be weather-related, McDonald said.

The name of the man who was killed could not be released Wednesday night because it was not clear if next of kin had been notified of the man's death, Morgan County Medical Examiner Steve McBee said.

It appears the driver of the northbound SUV crossed the center line and the passenger side of his vehicle was struck by the southbound tractor-trailer, McBee said.
