ALTA (WVVA) - A woman is dead and a teen injured after a head-on collision on Interstate 64 in Greenbrier County.

The crash occurred around noon near mile marker 160 -- approximately one mile from Alta -- when a vehicle traveling the wrong way in the westbound lanes struck another vehicle head-on.

Matt Butler, with the Alderson Fire Department says crews on scene had to use the Jaws of Life to remove both the woman and 19-year-old male from their vehicles.

The woman died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. The 19-year-old was transported to an out-of-area hospital.

Butler said the victim could not be transported by air due to the weather conditions.

Rescuers from Smoot, Williamsburg, Clintonville, Alderson and Fairlea also responded to the scene.

The crash is being investigated by the West Virginia State Police.
