Woman hurt in crash; I-81 closed in Berkeley

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. —  A Martinsburg-area woman was flown to Winchester (Va.) Medical Center Monday after the car she was driving flipped several times along Interstate 81, West Virginia State Police said.

The driver and a girl riding with her in a blue 1998 Plymouth Neon were not identified by State Police Trooper Z.L. Nine, who responded at 2:49 p.m., according to a news release by Sgt. J.D. Burkhart.

The girl, also from the Martinsburg area, was taken to Martinsburg’s City Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries, according to the news release.


The single-vehicle crash in the northbound lanes of I-81 in the area of the Tablers Station Road exit caused traffic delays for about an hour, Burkhart said.

“At this time it appears that the vehicle ran off the road for an unknown reason, and upon re-entering the roadway, the vehicle flipped over several times before coming to rest,” Burkhart said in a news release.

“The driver was ejected from the vehicle.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash can contact Trooper Nine at the West Virginia State Police Martinsburg Detachment at 304-267-0001.
