In a sorrowful turn of events, a fatal road accident occurred in Randolph County, West Virginia, leading to the death of one individual. The incident, involving two vehicles, took place on Saturday, May 25, at approximately 12:37 PM.

The location of the crash was particularly dangerous—the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Rt 33 on Corridor H, known as the Crystal Springs intersection. Authorities were alerted to the incident by a 911 call, prompting immediate responses from local emergency services.

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) was first on the scene, soon assisted by the West Virginia State Police (WVSP). The Elkins Fire Department played a crucial role, as their personnel managed to extract a victim trapped within the wreckage. Randolph EMS swiftly transported both drivers involved to Davis Medical Center for urgent care.

Further complications arose when it was revealed that the vehicle responsible for the accident was a dually truck hauling a farm trailer loaded with cattle. A cooperative effort by a local farm owner ensured the safety of the cattle, offering to shelter them temporarily until they could be retrieved by their owner.

Tragically, one of the drivers, identified as Louanna Carr from Elkins, succumbed to her injuries at the medical center. Her passing was confirmed by the Medical Examiner at Davis Medical Center.

In response to the accident, the RCSO requested the expertise of the WVSP crash reconstruction team to investigate the scene. The team’s focus will be on analyzing factors such as speed and skid distance to determine the cause of the crash.

This tragic event has deeply affected the community of Randolph County. The investigation remains ongoing as authorities work diligently to piece together the circumstances that led to this fatal accident, hoping to prevent future tragedies on this stretch of road.

The community and emergency services extend their heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Louanna Carr during this difficult time, as they come to terms with this devastating loss.
