This 18-wheeler loaded with coal ended up partially straddling a guardrail and over an embankment on U.S. Highway 119 near the Mingo County Department of Highways garage after the driver allegedly experienced a mechanical malfunction that prevented him from controlling the truck’s steering. The wreck occurred at about 7:30 a.m.Monday and was investigated by Mingo County sheriff’s Lt. Randy Hatfield, who was assisted at the scene by members of the Chattaroy Volunteer Fire Department. The DOH dispatched workers to the scene to assist in cleaning up the coal from the roadway. The unidentified driver was taken to a local hospital by STAT Ambulance for evaluation of injuries he suffered.
