Wetzel County Medical Examiner Carla McBee was able to confirm that very early Sunday morning a woman died on the Korean War Veteran’s Memorial Bridge that spans the Ohio River from New Martinsville to Hannibal.

McBee stated the woman jumped from a moving vehicle after an argument allegedly occurred between her and the driver. McBee stated that a vehicle coming from behind ran over the woman, which is what caused her death.

Emergency response occurred right after the incident happened.

Chief Deputy Mike Koontz of the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office stated that law enforcement is still investigating the matter. He added that as of now, no charges are pending.
