A Keyser resident was identified Monday as the victim of a fatal Sunday afternoon crash on Knobley Road, according to the Mineral County Sheriff's Office.

25-year-old Steven Robinson II was pronounced dead at the scene of the single-vehicle accident that occurred just after 2 p.m.

An investigation determined Robinson was the operator and sole occupant of a northbound Jeep and was negotiating a left-hand curve when the vehicle traveled out of control and slid sideways before striking a tree.

West Virginia State Police assisted the investigation. Short Gap and Fort Ashby volunteer fire departments responded to the scene.
