Four people hurt in Rt. 50 collision

By John G. Miller

MANAGING EDITOR

Four people were being treated at area hospitals late Saturday night following a two-car accident at the intersection of Davisson Run and U.S. Route 50 near Clarksburg.

The most seriously injured of the victims was trapped in his vehicle when emergency crews arrived, according to witnesses.

Members of the Reynoldsville Volunteer Fire Department and the Stonewood Volunteer Fire Department used two Jaws of Life to free the male occupant of a red Ford Focus.

"He was probably only in there about 18 minutes," said Reynoldsville Fire Chief Mike Gallo. "Because we had two Jaws of Life, we were able to take the top right off the car to get him out quickly."

The male was then flown by helicopter to Ruby Memorial Hospital while the other three victims, a female and two males, were taken by ambulance to United Hospital Center, according to Harrison County Deputy Sheriff Tim Ankrom.

"According to witnesses, the Ford Focus was turning left onto Davisson Run when it was hit by a Ford Taurus that was traveling toward Clarksburg," Ankrom said. "That's all the details I have right now. We won't have names until much later tonight or (Sunday)."

The 6:40 p.m. accident delayed traffic for more than an hour and turned the roadway into a sea of emergency lights as units from the Harrison County Sheriff's Department, State Police, Harrison County and Anmoore emergency squads, Division of Highways Courtesy Patrol and fire departments from Reynoldsville, Stonewood and Nutter Fort responded and set up a portion of the road for the helicopter's landing.
