Auto accident claims life of West Virginia firefighter

While most drivers in West Virginia operate their vehicles safely and without incident and the odds of being in an auto accident are low, there is always a chance that circumstances will mesh and lead to a crash. In some of these accidents, there are no injuries and minimal damage. In others, people are injured, but not severely. In some, however, there is a fatal accident. When this happens, it does not discriminate and can happen to anyone. Those who have lost a loved one in an auto accident will have a lot to consider after it has happened. That includes making sure they are cognizant of the future.

According to the State Transportation Secretary, the state is continuing to try to do something about the dangerously dilapidated roads throughout West Virginia.
