Car Plunges Over I-64 Overpass in South Charleston — 26 year Old Man Dies

West Virginia interstate overpass

South Charleston, WV: On Friday evening around 7:40 p.m., May 21, 2021, Brian Alan Durden was traveling westbound on I-64 near the MacCorkle Avenue exit when he lost control of his vehicle.  Kanawha County Deputies say the driver was heading west on I-64 when they lost control of their vehicle, scraped against the side of the bridge and then fell off of the bridge, nose-diving onto the ground below. 

Mr. Durden’s vehicle landed near the intersection of MacCorkle Avenue and Jefferson Road in South Charleston, West Virginia.  The accident is being investigated by the South Charleston police and a reconstruction expert.  South Charleston Fire and Kanawha County EMS responded to the accident scene.  

According to the obituary posted in the Charleston Gazette-Mail, Mr. Durden was a 26 year old resident from Lexington, Kentucky.  

Our prayers go out to Brian and the Durden family.
