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.

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.
