     On Friday at  approximately  6:40 pm, Troopers from the McHenry Barrack responded to westbound I-68 at the 1 mile marker for the report of a motor vehicle collision. Upon arrival, it was determined that a 2012 Toyota Highlander,  had been traveling east on I-68. The Toyota Highlander lost control due to wet road conditions and spun across the center median and onto westbound lanes of I-68. The Toyota Highlander was then struck in a head on collision with a 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 pickup, operated by Wallace Bulford of Terra Alta, WV.      Wallace Bulford, along with two other passengers which were in the GMC Sierra, were transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital. The driver of the Toyota Highlander was pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of the driver is being withheld until proper notifications can be made. Lane closures were intermittent during the investigation; entire roadway was reopened at approximately 2330 hours.
