Pickup Rolls Down an Embankment in West Virginia, Killing Four
It’s always heartbreaking when an auto accident kills several people, particularly when the victims are children.
A number of families in Boone County, West Virginia are in mourning after a crash near Danville last Friday which left four dead, reported Coalvalleynews.com.
Two of the victims were children aged five and one-years-old. The children’s grandmother, Diane Van Gundy, told a news station it was difficult to come to terms with the loss. The other fatalities were Betty Holstein and Rebecca Bias.
“The only thing I can really say is they’re up in heaven with Jesus right now,” Van Gundy said. “Jesus is holding them and loving them right now.”
She said the group was heading back from a relative’s house in Alum Creek when a pickup truck went down an embankment on Route 119, flipped on its side and burst into flames. The father of one of the children survived and was reported to be in a stable condition at Charleston General Hospital. My thoughts are with the family members of those who lost their lives in this crash.
The wreck occurred about 1 a.m. near Bradley Road. The cause of the crash remains under investigation. As a trucking accident lawyer who is licensed in West Virginia, I see many tragic accidents on the winding roads of the state.
