A Brooke County man died Thursday after he was ejected from a Honda during a crash on W.Va. 2 south near the Pike Island Locks and Dam, just north of the Warwood section of Wheeling.

Ohio County Sheriff Pat Butler said the man is in his 40s, but authorities are not yet releasing his name, pending notification of family members.

At the scene, Cpl. Rod Vaught said the man rear-ended a pickup truck, causing his vehicle to roll over multiple times before coming to rest on its roof on the embankment between Wheeling Heritage Trail and the Ohio River.
