Pair Are Hurt In W.Va. 88 Crash

Two people were transported to area hospitals late Thursday morning following a three-vehicle crash on W.Va. 88 just north of Clinton Hills and GC&P Road.

An official with the Ohio County Sheriff’s Department said it appears the person driving a white Jeep Wrangler bearing a Pennsylvania license plate veered left-of-center while traveling north on W.Va. 88, first striking a Volkswagen Jetta in the southbound lane. It continued left-of-center and collided with a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, also bearing a Pennsylvania license plate, with a Nello Construction logo on the side.

The deputy said the drivers of both the Jeep and pickup truck were injured as a result of the wreck.

Traffic was at a standstill for nearly an hour in both directions on W.Va. 88 while emergency crews worked to clear the scene. Emergency personnel from West Liberty and Triadelphia volunteer fire departments as well as several units with the Ohio County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene. No other details were available Thursday.
