The West Virginia State Police say that two women were trapped inside a passenger vehicle after their car collided with a coal truck Wednesday. Police believe that the driver of the passenger vehicle pulled out from a store parking lot onto MacCorkle Avenue in Chelyan, West Virginia. Authorities say that a coal truck on MacCorkle was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.
The truck and the car collided. The car was plowed into a telephone pole and the two occupants were trapped inside. Authorities had to cut into the wreckage during rescue efforts. The two women in the passenger vehicle were taken to an area hospital after being freed from the wreckage.
