Charleston, WV — A man named Kevin Wagy, 41, was identified as the trucker who was taken to a hospital this week after his big rig was in an accident on I-64. This was just north of Charleston, near the area of Institute.
Wagy was injured after his 18-wheeler was in a wreck in the eastbound lanes of I-64, causing the truck to swerve off the side of the interstate and roll down an embankment.
The truck flipped over and landed upside down, authorities reported, which left Mr. Wagy trapped in the cab. After he was rescued by emergency workers, he was rushed to the closest hospital to be treated for his injuries.
This was near mile marker 50.
Wagy was hauling ammonia that night and some of it spilled on the road, prompting cleanup crews to respond.
The cause of the accident isn’t clear yet. It happened around 11:30 p.m. on Monday night, August 17, 2015.
