Four sent to hospital after wreck in St. Albans
ST. ALBANS, W.Va. -- One child was critically injured and another broke his leg in an accident that sent four people to the hospital late Sunday in St. Albans.
Two cars collided at the intersection of Fifth Street and U.S. 60 at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, according to Capt. James Agee of the St. Albans Police Department.
Agee said a car driven by Sheila Gibson, 54, of St. Albans, turned left off U.S. 60 onto Fifth Street into the path of a car driven by Natalie Thomas, 35, of Cross Lanes. Both Gibson and Thomas were taken to CAMC General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Thomas's two sons were in the car with her at the time of the crash, Agee said. Jacob Hughey, 12, was sitting up front and broke his femur in the wreck. Agee said he told officers he was not wearing a seatbelt.
His brother, Caleb Hughey, 11, was seriously injured and was sitting in the back seat, Agee said. Agee said the child may have only been wearing a lap belt.
Caleb Hughey was taken to CAMC General Hospital where he was in the intensive care unit, Agee said.
Agee said both drivers will probably be charged. He said Thomas had a suspended driver's license and no proof of insurance.
