The driver of this red Ford F-250 is believed to have experienced a medical issue prior to crossing into the Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School parking lot and coming to a stop in ditch.

Medical issue may have caused Monday afternoon wreck across from Skyline Plaza

TENNERTON – Two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries following a single-vehicle wreck Monday that was apparently caused by a medical issue.

The wreck happened just after 1 p.m. Monday, when the driver of a red Ford F-250 truck, Matthew Lee, of Buckhannon, attempted to turn out of the Skyline Plaza/Kroger parking lot and experienced a medical issue, according to investigating officer Sgt. Rodney Rolenson with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department.

“What we think is that the individual came out of the Kroger parking lot and had a medical issue and continued across (Route 20) and down through the middle school parking lot and over into a ditch,” Rolenson said.

Upshur EMS and the Buckhannon Fire Department assist with the single-vehicle wreck Monday.

Rolenson said Lee and a female passenger were transported by Upshur EMS to St. Joseph’s Hospital for medical treatment, but their injuries were not life-threatening.

The Ford F-250 appeared to be totaled, Rolenson said.

In addition to the sheriff’s department and Upshur EMS, the Buckhannon Fire Department and Washington Volunteer Fire Company also responded to the scene.
