SALEM -- One patient is under observation at United Hospital Center following an accident at the intersection of state Route 23 and U.S. Route 50 around 11 a.m. Thursday, according to Capt. G.L. Jordan of the Harrison County Bureau of Emergency Services and a hospital spokeswoman.

Wallace Baker of West Union is in satisfactory condition at the hospital, the hospital spokeswoman said.

Also transported from the accident were Sue Edwards of Reynoldsville, Melissa Boone of Harrisville and Boone's 3-year-old daughter, said Salem Fire Chief Richard Todd. Edwards and Boone were treated and released. The condition of the 3-year-old was not known.

The four were transported by Salem Emergency Medical Services.

Two vehicles, a mini-van and an older model Ford, were involved in the accident, according to Todd.

Both vehicles were a total loss, he said.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation by Deputy P.L. Steffick, who was unavailable for comment.

Thursday's wreck is the second accident in the past week at the intersection of U.S. 50 and Route 23. A 2-month-old baby died Monday after suffering injuries in a two-vehicle collision on Saturday.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department, Salem Volunteer Fire Department, Smithburg Volunteer Fire Department, Harrison County Emergency Medical Services and Salem Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene.
