PENNSBORO - A Tyler County woman died Saturday morning in a two-vehicle accident in Ritchie County that also injured four others.
Edna Snavely, 41, of Middlebourne, died in the accident which occurred about 11:30 a.m. Saturday on U.S. 50 at the intersection with West Virginia 74 near Pennsboro, according to Ritchie County Sheriff's Deputy R.A. Stewart.
The accident was investigated by Deputy J.R. Asbury.
Hilliary Googash, 29, of Frederick, Md., was the driver of the second vehicle and was treated and released Saturday at Camden Clark Medical Center, Memorial Campus, hospital officials said.
Stewart said three passengers in Snavely's vehicle, a man, a woman and a female juvenile, were also transported to Camden Clark but no further information was available on their identities or conditions.
Stewart said Snavely was attempting to cross U.S. 50 on W.Va. 74 at Pennsboro when she pulled across the westbound lanes and was struck in the driver's door of her 2000 Ford Escort by Googash's westbound 2010 Nissan Sentra.
The accident remains under investigation by Asbury, he said.
