Train Hits Truck Trailer, No Injuries

By Staff | Feb 24, 2016

Both the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Wetzel County Office of Emergency Management, were able to confirm that an incident occurred early Wednesday morning involving a train and a truck.

WCSO Chief Deputy Mike Koontz stated that the accident occurred approximately at 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Director of the Wetzel County Office of Emergency Management Ed Sapp reported that the train hit the trailer part of the truck; the trailer was filled with sawdust or saw chips.

Sapp said the sheriff’s office was investigating the accident but would probably turn the investigation over to the railroad police at CSX.

The Wetzel Chronicle will update this story as additional information becomes available.
