It isn't uncommon to hear about motorists disobeying the laws regarding pedestrians. One man in Kanawha County wants to ensure that the laws aren't just enforced but that stricter laws are put into place. This comes after his wife was struck by a vehicle in 2008 while she was entering a local grocery store. While she did not die from the car accident, she did incur brain and other physical injuries from which she may never fully recover.
A motorcyclist is reportedly recovering from some serious injuries after a head-on collision with another vehicle. Officials say the accident happened in St. Albans, West Virginia, on June 14 at about 4 p.m. along West Main Street.
An anonymous caller is being credited with helping West Virginia police track down a Charleston man they who they say is responsible for causing another man's death in a September 2011 hit-and-run accident. Hit-and-run accidents can be difficult to prosecute, and indeed, the Kanawha County assistant prosecutor says that it took the prosecutor's office some months to track down who the person was who had left the scene of this accident.
A deadly car accident has taken the life of one driver and left another in the ICU ward of Charleston Area Medical Center. The accident occurred on southbound I-77 in Kanawha County, close to the Tuppers Creek Exit on the afternoon of May 31. After seeing the amount of damage to the cars and how far it was spread across the highway, a Department of Transportation employee proclaimed that it was the worst car accident he has ever seen.
The driver of an all-terrain vehicle was critically injured in a truck accident in Kanawha County late last month. The man was reportedly travelling south on Cabin Creek Road near Wet Branch Road when he was struck by a coal truck that was turning off the road. Cabin Creek Road remained closed for several hours that night while an investigation was conducted.
