One person was injured, and State Route 7 was shut down after an accident yesterday morning in Powhatan Point.

A tractor trailer hit a bridge, and a beam fell onto a vehicle that was stopped at the red light. The beam fell right on top of the car’s windshield pinning the driver inside.

The truck driver called police and pulled over further up the road.

First responders worked to move the beam and get the driver out of the car. He was transported by medical helicopter to a Morgantown hospital with serious injuries.
