The injured party in a fatal McDowell County, West Virginia dump truck accident has been identified. The driver of the dump truck was killed following a wreck on West Virginia Route 80 in McDowell County.  According to McDowell County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant, James Muncy Jr, the vehicle involved was a tandem gravel truck. The McDowell County Sheriff’s Office responded to a motor vehicle accident on Route 80 near Iaeger in Avondale, West Virginia. Upon arrival, the Deputy found the driver to be deceased at the scene and a passenger present who needed to be flown to the Pikeville Medical Center.

Sergeant Muncy said family members of the victim have been notified.
