WVSP: Man suffered life-threatening injuries in Feb. 14 wreck on Route 33

BUCKHANNON – A man who wrecked on U.S. Route 33 East on Valentine’s Day suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to Morgantown due to inclement weather.

The Buckhannon detachment of the West Virginia State Police have not released the name of a man whose vehicle rolled three times and ejected him near the 18-mile-marker and East/Hardman Road intersection on U.S. Route 33 Friday, Feb. 14.

According to a release from investigating officer Cpl. V.J. Pyles that was issued Friday, the single male occupant of a 1999 Toyota 4-Runner was traveling east on Route 33 at about 4:45 p.m. when his vehicle exited the roadway and veered into to median, nearly entering the Route 33 westbound lanes. The 4-Runner again crossed the median and rolled three times, the release says.

“At some point while the vehicle was rolling over, the driver was ejected and received injury,” the WVSP news release states. “The investigation will be ongoing. The name of the subject will not be released until his condition is updated.”

The officer noted weather conditions at the time of the wreck were “not favorable,” and the male had to be transported to a hospital in Morgantown by a HealthNet ground crew due to weather conditions.

As of Monday afternoon, an official with the state police said the investigation is ongoing.
