ATHENS (WVVA) - A woman was transported to a nearby hospital after a vehicle went off Interstate 77 and over an embankment Tuesday.

The crash occurred at approximately 10 a.m. around mile marker 17 -- just short of the Camp Creek exit in Mercer County.

According to Sgt. Hamilton of the West Virginia State Police, a couple from Cincinnati was traveling northbound when their Chevy Trailblazer hydroplaned, going off the highway, through a guardrail and down the embankment.

The wife was taken to Princeton Community Hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
