Three injured in crash on Route 20 near Bluewell

BLUEWELL (WVVA) - Three people were transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center following a two-car crash on Route 20 near Bluewell.

According to deputies on-scene with the Mercer County Sheriff's Department, the crash occurred around 10:55 a.m. when a silver Dodge SUV traveling south apparently lost control and veered across the highway, striking a blue pickup truck.

The male driver and female passenger of the pickup had to be extricated from the vehicle.

The two occupants of the pickup and the driver of the SUV were all transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center. Their conditions are unknown at this time.

Deputies say wet roads likely played a factor in the crash.

Traffic was backed up on Route 20 approximately one mile as crews worked to clear the scene.
