Car accident investigations can include a wide variety of factors that make it difficult for law enforcement to determine what happened. We live in an information-based culture as Internet technology can move news across the state (or world) in the blink of an eye. But investigations may not uncover potential witnesses (if anyone actually saw the wreck) and victims and others involved may not be able to provide law enforcement with answers.
Deputies have not released a great deal of information about a fatal accident Tuesday in West Virginia. One man was killed and a second man was airlifted to the hospital after a wreck in Fayette County Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities are still trying to figure out the details surrounding the head-on crash. Deputies say that a 53-year-old Cannelton, West Virginia man crossed into oncoming traffic shortly before 2:25 Tuesday afternoon, leading to a head-on collision.
