DIXIE (NEWS RELEASE) -- A Clay County man was severely injured in a vehicle accident yesterday afternoon in the Dixie area of Fayette County. Sheriff Steve Kessler released the following information concerning this accident:

During the late afternoon hours of Saturday, June 1, 2013 notification was received through the Fayette County 911 Center of a single-vehicle accident on Count Route 2 just past Bell Creek Road in the Dixie area of Fayette County. Upon arrival at the scene it was determined that this vehicle had apparently hit a dirt bank, then overturned and landed in the middle of the road. Personnel from the Gauley Bridge and Gauley River Fire Departments as well as Jan Care Ambulance Service and the Fayette County Sheriff's Office all responded to the scene.

The driver of this vehicle was extricated from the vehicle by Fire Department personnel at the scene, then transported to Charleston Area Medical Center by Health Net Air Ambulance Service. The driver of this vehicle has been identified as Jeffrey J. Arnold, age 24, of Lizemores in Clay County, WV. His condition is unknown at this time.

The abuse of drugs or alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this collision at this time. "The preliminary investigation indicates that excessive speed may have played a role in this accident," said Sheriff Kessler. This accident remains under investigation by Deputy E.A. Shrewsbury of the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.
