DANESE, W.Va. -- A Fayette County man was killed Sunday night after his pickup truck slammed into a bridge near Danese.
Franklin D. Terry, 51, of Danese, was driving on W.Va. 41 aroound 8 p.m. when he apparently lost control of his pickup truck and slammed into a bridge, Fayette Sheriff Steve Kessler said in a news release.
Kessler said the bed of Terry's truck separated from the cab and frame. The sheriff said the bed remained on the roadway, but the rest of the truck hurtled over the embankment. He said a slab of concrete tumbled off of the bridge and slammed into the cab of the truck, trapping Terry inside.
Firefighters were able to get Terry out of the truck, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, Kessler said.
