FAIRMONT — A Marion County woman was taken to a local hospital after a two-vehicle accident on U.S. Route 250 near Farmington just after noon Tuesday.

According to West Virginia State Police, a Ford Escape traveling north near Farmington traveled left of center.

An oncoming dump truck driver tried to avoid the Escape but was unable and hit the SUV head on. The Escape hit the front right wheel of the truck and continued down the side before the Escape ended up in the ditch on its side.

The driver of the Escape was identified as Roberta Hoy, 57, of Mannington.

Hoy was reportedly entrapped and had to be extricated from the vehicle.

She was transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown with non-life-threatening injuries.

The truck driver was identified as Woodrow Sigley, 37, of Reedsville. He didn’t sustain any injuries, according to State Police.

Route 250 was closed for about an hour and a half while crews cleared the roadway.

Marion County Rescue Squad and Farmington and Mannington volunteer fire departments also responded.
