December 11, 2012

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. — A Jefferson County woman and her two children were taken to area hospitals Monday evening for non-life threatening injuries after the vehicle she was driving clipped a utility pole and flipped twice, police said.

Tammy Brode and her 13-year-old son were taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Ranson, W.Va., after the crash on Ridge Road and her 11-year-old son was taken to Winchester (Va.) Medical Center, West Virginia State Police Sgt. E.D. Anderson said.

The youngest boy was partially ejected from the Dodge Caravan his mother was driving as a result of the crash.

Brode lost control of the vehicle while was driving toward Luther Jones Road, according to police.

Anderson said he was told the boys were not wearing seat belts. The curvy road was wet and that is suspected to have been a factor in the crash, according to Anderson.

The accident was reported at 4:34 p.m., according to a Jefferson County emergency communications supervisor.
