PARKERSBURG Three people were sent to the hospital Monday after a two-car wreck at 11 a.m. at the corner of Juliana and Eighth streets.
According to city police, a 1997 Ford Taurus driven by Loretha Vanfossen, 51, of Parkersburg, was westbound on Eighth Street when witnesses reported she ran a red light, striking a northbound Dodge Caravan driven by Timothy Bibbee, 36, of Washington.
Bibbee and his passenger, 41-year-old Florence Underwood, were transported to Camden Clark Medical Center, said Sgt. Greg Collins of the Parkersburg Police Department. Both were being treated in the emergency room Monday evening.
