WELLSBURG -A two-vehicle collision Tuesday on state Route 27 that resulted in the death of an elderly local woman remains under investigation by the Brooke County Sheriff's Department.
Brooke County Sheriff Richard Ferguson hadn't released on Tuesday night the name of the 82-year-old woman who was pronounced dead after being transported by medical helicopter from the accident.
Ferguson didn't have the identity yet for the other driver, a local man, who was transported by ambulance.
He said the accident, a head-on collision that appeared to have resulted from one of the vehicles veering left of center, occurred at a dip in the road near Painter Run.
The sheriff said the woman had to be extricated from her vehicle by firefighters.
