Route 50 wreck

GRAFTON—Crews were called to the scene of a single-vehicle accident on U.S. Route 50 West, Thursday morning.

According to Captain Randy Durrett, of the Taylor County Sheriff’s Department, an individual was traveling west on Route 50 toward Bridgeport, when he struck an icy patch, causing him to lose control of his 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and hit an embankment.

The individual was taken by ambulance, to United Hospital Center in Clarksburg for a minor head injury. Durrett reported that no citations were being issued for the accident.

The Taylor County Sheriff’s Department, Grafton Fire Department, Flemington Fire Department and Taylor County Emergency Medical Squad all responded to the scene. The West Virginia Division of Highways was on scene, as well, to help with traffic control.

According to Durrett, he also handled two wrecks on Meadland Road earlier in the morning, both involved no injuries or citations. He said both of those wrecks were due to road conditions.

Durrett also reported that he responded to another accident on Berry Run, where an SUV struck a tree, but more information was not available at the time of the call.
