MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A Berkeley County woman was killed Monday night after wrecking a vehicle on W.Va. 9, just west of the Town of Hedgesville near the community's post office, the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department said.
The single-vehicle crash was reported to have happened in the 5700 block of what also is known as Hedgesville Road at 8:40 p.m., Sheriff W. Randy Smith said.
The woman was reportedly thrown from the car. Officials were withholding her name Monday night because her family had not been notified.
The accident was being investigated by the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department and the Hedgesville Volunteer Fire Department. The Berkeley County Sheriff's Reserves were also dispatched to the scene.
