Elkins woman killed in morning wreck
ELKINS — An Elkins woman was killed on Wednesday morning in a two-vehicle accident involving a large truck on Route 92 near J.F. Allen Company.
Police said Quincy Shreve, approximately 25 years of age, was driving a 2019 Toyota Rav4 and traveling north on Route 92 toward Corridor H from the Crystal Springs area at about 8:15 a.m.
“For an unknown reason, she went left of center into oncoming traffic, into the lane of travel of a (2007) Kenworth,” said Corporal Shawn Miller of the Elkins detachment of the West Virginia State Police.
Shreve was traveling in the opposite lane when the vehicles struck head-on, Miller said
The driver of the truck, Garry Holland, is a CDL-certified truck driver from Oakland, Maryland, who was traveling with his brother as a passenger, police said. Holland and his brother were both transported to Davis Medical Center for initial medical treatment. Holland’s brother was then transported elsewhere to receive care for a fracture on the left side of his face.
The secondary transport location was not available at presstime. Neither Holland nor his brother are in critical condition.
The truck and trailer left the roadway during the accident and sheared off a utility pole.
The truck was pulling a trailer that was carrying a piece of heavy equipment that was thrown from the truck and landed in the middle of the road.
Traffic was backed up in both directions while emergency crews worked at the site.
Also responding at the scene were the Elkins Fire Department and Randolph County EMS.
An uninvolved witness at the scene was able to assist with police interviews.
