BUCKHANNON — One local woman was sent to the hospital following a motor vehicle accident on Mount Nebo Road Thursday afternoon.
Allison Tenney was driving a silver 2011 Buick Regal on Mount Nebo Road when she allegedly encountered an equipment issue that resulted in a rollover. As she was approaching a turn, Tenney said she attempted to hit the brakes on the vehicle but “it felt like they weren’t working,” she told West Virginia State Police Cpl. T. Menendez, who investigated the accident.
Following the possible brake malfunction, Tenney’s vehicle reportedly flipped onto its top into the nearby ditch. A passing pedestrian noticed that Tenney was still trapped in the car and was able to help her get out.
Ellamore Volunteer Fire Department and Upshur EMS were first on scene. Tenney was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital for minor injuries.
