February 27th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The WV State Police TFC A. R. Hanlon responded to a vehicle crash at approximately 0730 hours this morning.  The reported crash involved three vehicles, consisting of two pick up trucks and a school bus along SR 28 in Fort Ashby, WV, in Mineral County.  Mineral County Sheriff's Deputies Talley and Wingler also responded to assist.  TFC Hanlon is the lead investigator in the crash investigation.  According to the State Police, a passenger truck was exiting a side parking lot onto SR 28 and appears to have struck another passenger truck traveling North on SR 28 while doing so.  This caused the second truck to lose control and subsequently strike a loaded school bus traveling south on SR 28.  All three vehicles were required to be towed from the scene which was completed by Isers, Peers, and Furlows Towing.  Three total transports were completed to Western Maryland Health Systems.  The transports are believed to be routine checks and not severe.  The crash remains under investigation pending additional statements. 


The initial call prompted the Ft. Ashby and Wiley Ford Fire and EMS to respond.  Additional EMS from the Short Gap, Ridgley, Fountain, New Creek, Springfield, Allegany County District 16, Burlington, Cresaptown, Lavale, Tri-Towns, Romney Rescue EMS and Hampshire County Emergency Services EMS also responded upon the initial report.  The three individuals transported were completed by Ridgeley VFD EMS, Wiley Ford VFD EMS, and Hampshire County Emergency Services EMS.  The WV State Police thanks the responding emergency services for the timely response and check of the numerous passengers. 


Charges are pending the completed investigation.
