High school students involved in multiple wrecks

BUCKHANNON — Teenage drivers were involved in wrecks before and after school on Friday.

One vehicle wrecked into a ditch along the Brushy Fork Road on a rainy Friday morning, and then six cars were involved in a chain reaction of rear-end collisions on Route 20 near Stoney Run in the afternoon.

According to chief deputy Mike Kelley with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department, a 16-year-old girl lost control of her black 2016 Volkswagon Jetta while going around the left-hand curve near the Eagle Street intersection at 7:23 a.m.

Kelley noted that weather conditions contributed to the accident. The vehicle veered off the wet roadway and went into a deep ditch.

No injuries were reported, and no citations were issued.

In the afternoon, one car ended up in a telephone pole and several others were damaged in a series of accidents.

According to witnesses at the scene, a three-vehicle wreck resulting in one car striking a telephone pole led to a second wreck — this time, a two-vehicle accident involving a tan Toyota Corolla and red Jeep.

Another car heading in the opposite direction was damaged by debris.

More information on those wrecks was not immediately available Friday afternoon.
