Car crashes into WV school bus leaving one dead — DUI charges imminent

Charleston, WV — On Wednesday evening at about 5:30 near Rt. 52 in Breeden, Mingo County, Wendell Lewis Perry was driving his car erratically when he swerved into a school bus, according to witnesses.

The driver of the bus was not injured and fortunately no students were on board.  However, Randolph Marcum, a passenger in Perry’s car, was killed in the crash.

According to the investigation, beer cans and several pill bottles were found on the floor of Perry’s car.  The investigating deputy said he smelled alcohol on Perry’s breath.

Perry was taken to the hospital. Deputies said he is facing charges of DUI causing death.

Please take this as a reminder of the deadly risks involved each time someone drives drunk or under the influence of drugs.  Our prayers go out to all the families affected by this tragedy.

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. David is the absolute best. His communication was unbelievable throughout the entire process as well as his worth ethic. He took great care of me I would highly recommend him for any auto related injury. He continually fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved!

I've worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend them.
