According to the Charleston Gazette, a coal truck crossed the center line on West Virginia 61 by Beards Fork a little before noon. 19-year-olds Justin Davis and Adam Sizemore were driving their Chevrolet Trailblazer on the opposite side of West Virginia 61. Unfortunately, they were in the coal truck's path as it crossed the center line.
The driver of the Trailblazer, Davis, was thrown from the vehicle. His passenger, Sizemore, was also injured. They were both life-flighted to the hospital. Charleston Area Medical Center reports that Davis is in critical condition, and Sizemore is stable.
26-year-old Larry Evans was the driver of the coal truck. Police have not issued him a ticket for the accident. He was not injured. Police think that he was distracted when he crossed the line.
