Woman in fair condition after colliding with Mack truck

BUCKHANNON — A woman was injured in a two-vehicle wreck Monday morning on Brushy Fork Road.
The wreck happened as Howard Smith, 62, of Buckhannon, was traveling south on the Brushy Fork Road in a Mack truck owned by C&J Well Service based in Oklahoma City, Okla., according to the report from the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department.

A 13-year-old juvenile was not injured, while a 6-year-old juvenile reported a bump on the head.
