Logging Truck Crash Sends 3 WV High School Students to Hospital

18 Wheeler Logging Truck in West Virginia

Princeton, WV – A terrible auto accident involving a logging truck and a car has left three (3) Princeton high school girls with serious injuries.  The crash happened on Airport Road near Bluewell in Mercer County, West Virginia.

The investigation into the cause of the accident continued through Monday.  However, a preliminary investigation indicates that the girls’ vehicle may have pulled out in front of the logging truck

The 18-wheeler logging truck was investigated at the scene by the West Virginia Department of Transportation and initially found to comply with regulations. However, more details emerge about the cause of the crash later.

Two girls in the vehicle were twin sisters accompanied by their friend, all members of the Princeton Senior High School Band.  A candlelight vigil was held Saturday night at the hospital, and a GoFundMe page was established to help the families.  The GoFundMe page update has indicated that the twin sisters are still in ICU recovering, and their friend was released. 

At West Law Firm, our thoughts and prayers go out to all those involved in this crash.
