FAIRMONT — A two vehicle accident Monday morning sent two to the hospital.
According to Marion County 911, the accident occurred around 10 a.m. on Monday on Interstate 79 near mile marker 137. Two vehicles were involved in the accident.
According to West Virginia State Police Cpl. J. A. McDougal, both vehicles were traveling south at the time of the accident. A truck and green Pontiac were involved in the accident.
The driver of the Pontiac had drifted over toward the truck then overcorrected the vehicle and went over the shoulder near the median, McDougal said. The Pontiac overcorrected again and hit the truck before it struck median cables and stopped.
According to McDougal, the truck went over the median cables and hit guard rail on northbound side of the interstate. Both individuals who were in the Pontiac went to Mon General with minor injuries and were released.
Prior to the accident, the occupants of the vehicles were having a conflict and yelling and making gestures toward each other, McDougal said.
