West Virginia Accident involving Pickup Truck and Trash Truck Injures Three

A February 7, 2012, collision between a pickup truck and a garbage truck in Williamstwon, West Virginia, left the pickup's driver and his two passengers injured. According to the News and Sentinel, the injured driver had made a sharp turn onto WV 31 from Highland Avenue, lost control of his vehicle and struck the trash truck.

A female teen was partially ejected from the pickup through the back window and was taken to Camden Clark Medical Center. The other passenger was also transported to that hospital, but no other information was reported. It appears that the garbage truck driver was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation, and it is possible that citations will be given. If the trash truck driver caused the accident, all three people in the pickup truck may be able to file claims against the driver and Waste Management, the company that employed him. In that event, they should contact a West Virginia personal injury attorney to determine whether they have cases.

If the pickup truck driver is found to be at fault, it is still imperative for the injured passengers contact a West Virginia attorney, even if the driver is a friend or relative. Read why someone should still file a claim even if an acquaintance was driving.
