DAN’S BRANCH - With an overcast, gray sky overhead and a list mist in the air, local roadways have a tendency to get a little slippery at times and caution has to be used when operating a vehicle. The less than appealing weather condition is thought to have possibly played a part in a one-vehicle accident that occurred when an elderly female left the northbound lane of U.S. 119, struck a ravine and then came to rest against a guardrail at the Dan’s Branch exit.


Grady Newsome, of Naugatuck, had to be extricated by the jaws-of-life from her 1998 Buick Park Avenue by firefighters and first responders with the Chattaroy Volunteer Fire Department and the Williamson Fire Department, following the accident which is believed to have totaled her car. Newsome was complaining of back, neck and chest pain and appeared to be in a dazed and confused state of mind as she was being loaded into the Mingo County Emergency Services ambulance. She was transported to the Williamson Memorial Hospital for evaluation and treatment.


Deputy M. Lendearo with the Mingo County Sheriff’s Department investigated the accident.
