Truck crash injures driver, covers U.S. 119 with blocks

The driver of this Wright Concrete tractor-trailer hauling blocks from the company’s plant at Sookeys Creek to Roag in northern West Virginia suffered non life-threatening injuries after his truck flipped in a steep curve on U.S. 119 at Sharondale at around 7:45 Wednesday morning, scattering his load across the highway. Both southbound and northbound traffic had to be diverted to the shoulders of the road until the debris could be cleaned up and the truck hauled away. No other injuries were reported. The Belfry Volunteer Fire Department and KSP Troopers Jamie Fields and Kalin Caudill were assisted at the scene by Appalachian First Response.
