Man cited following three-vehicle wreck on Tallmansville Road

TALLMANSVILLE – One man was cited for following too closely following a three-vehicle wreck at the intersection of Tallmansville and Hickory Flat roads Saturday.

According to the police report filed by investigating officer V.J. Pyles with the Buckhannon detachment of the West Virginia State Police, the wreck happened at about 2:20 p.m. when a black Kia Soul being driven by Anna Lane, 28, of Buckhannon, had stopped at the intersection of Tallmansville Road and Country Club Road and was preparing to turn left onto Country Club Road.

At that point, a black Ford F-150 being driven by Steven Milligan, 26, of Buckhannon, had been traveling out the Tallmansville Road and was unable to come to a stop before striking the Kia in the back, resulting in have rear-end damage.

Pyles report says the driver of a third vehicle – a white Ford F-350 pick-up truck that sustained minor damage in the accident – had been traveling toward Route 20, in the direction opposite of both the Kia and black Ford.

The drivers of the Kia and white Ford both told Pyles that Milligan, the driver of the black Ford, had been traveling too fast.

Pyles found Milligan at fault and cited him for following too closely and expired/no motor vehicle insurance.

At least four people in the Kia were transported by Upshur EMS to WVU Medicine St. Joseph’s Hospital, including an 11-year-old female; a 9-year-old male; Ashley Riddle, 27; and Brandon Henline, 24. However, the adults were not admitted, and the two minor children have been treated and released, Lisa Wharton, St. Joseph’s vice president for marketing, public relations and foundation, said Monday.

Cpl. Theron Caynor with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department also assisted with the investigation.
