June 17th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

One person died in a multivehicle accident that closed Southbound Interstate 81 for hours late Thursday afternoon in the Spring Mills area, emergency officials said. The Herald Mail reports that Berkeley County Medical Center spokeswoman Teresa McCabe said  10 patients were sent by ambulance to the hospital from the accident.

Of those 10, one was deceased, McCabe said.

Two additional patients were transported by private vehicle, McCabe said. The remaining 11 patients were still being evaluated and treated, she said.

A dispatcher with West Virginia State Police said Friday morning authorities were not ready to release the name of the deceased.

The crash occurred about the same time a severe storm tore through the Eastern Panhandle.
