LEETOWN, W.Va. - A 14-year-old Bunker Hill, W.Va., girl was taken to Winchester (Va.) Medical Center on Friday afternoon after she was ejected from a Ford Explorer that collided with a tour bus on Old Leetown Pike in Jefferson County, police and emergency officials said.
West Virginia State Police Trooper J.C. Moon said he needed to speak with a supervising officer before releasing the name of the girl, who emergency responders found in the middle of the road near a residence at 1087 Old Leetown Pike.
The girl's 53-year-old mother, who also was not identified, and bus driver Thomas Furino, 45, of Kearneysville, W.Va., were taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Ranson, W.Va., for treatment, Moon said. There were no passengers on the bus, Moon said.
The accident, which was reported at 3:40 p.m., still is under investigation, but Moon said rainy conditions might have contributed to the crash at a slight bend in Old Leetown Pike.
