Driver Taken To Hospital For Treatment

A Culpepper, Va., man was transported to Berkeley Springs Hospital for treatment of minor injuries sustained during a commercial vehicle accident along Interstate 70 on Friday, state police said.

Thirty-seven-year-old Joseph Culley Buchanon was travelling through a construction area when the Bethel Township roadway was reduced to only one lane of travel. Buchanon lost control of his tractor-trailer hauling wood flooring, which veered off the road and over an embankment. The tractor trailer rolled onto its side.

Buchanon was wearing a seat belt when the accident occurred. State police were assisted on the crash scene by the Hancock and Need- more fire companies and Fischer’s Towing.
