Follow the law: Stop for School Buses

School bus.jpgWith public school starting in Marion County, West Virginia, today and with other local school districts already in session, there are a few things that drivers need to be aware of and take extra caution towards to ensure the safety of bus drivers and school children. While school buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in preventing injuries when involved in a crash, it is important that drivers stop for school buses to ensure a child's safety when getting off the bus. Here are a few things to keep in mind as our kids go back to school:

I-79 Tractor Trailer Crash Causes Fatality

A multi-vehicle car accident that occurred in Monongalia County on August 9th, 2016, left one dead. The accident occurred on I-79 near mile marker 150 at around 4am. According to West Virginia State Police, a PAM tractor trailer and tow truck were pulled over onto the side of the interstate when a PPG tractor trailer crashed into the vehicles. An individual inside the PAM truck was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. West Virginia State Police are still investigating the cause of the incident.

Fairmont Car Crash Sends Two to Hospital
