Traffic redirected

October 29, 2013
Weirton Daily Times
Cars northbound out of Hancock County wait their turn to exit the Newell Bridge on Monday evening after being redirected following an accident on state Route 2. The accident occurred at 4:25 p.m. Monday when a tractor-trailer northbound on state Route 2 struck two power poles just north of the Newell Bridge, Hancock County Sheriff Ralph Fletcher said. The accident brought several power lines down and knocked out power to 864 customers in the Chester/Newell area. Sheriff’s deputies and reserve officers assisted with rerouting traffic northbound through East Liverpool. Newell volunteer firefighters and West Virginia Division of Highways crews also responded and were on standby. A spokesman for MonPower said power would be restored early this morning. -- Richard Sberna
