TENNERTON — A pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle while walking along Route 20 Thursday evening suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to state police.

Cpl. V.J. Pyles with the Buckhannon detachment of the West Virginia State Police said Friday that Daniel Ross, 52, was struck by the right mirror and fender of a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer being driven by Winston Kelley, 25, of Buckhannon.
