West Virginia

BUNKER HILL, W.Va. (WDVM) — A Gerrardstown woman was declared dead on the scene by police after she was struck head-on on Wednesday night.

Officers from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 900 block of Sam Mason Road for a report of a vehicle crash involving two vehicles and a pedestrian. Upon arrival, Deputy Sheriffs learned the pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle. The driver of the first vehicle then struck the other vehicle involved in the incident.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the pedestrian, who has since been identified as 52-year-old Linda Sine, was acting as a ground guide for the second vehicle involved in the incident. The second vehicle was also towing a trailer and had just turned on to Sam Mason Road headed east. The first vehicle was traveling westbound when it struck Sine head-on before running into the side of the trailer.

Both drivers remained on the scene and as a result of the incident, Sam Mason Road was completely closed between the 700 and 900 blocks for almost three hours while investigators processed the scene.

This investigation remains active at this time and anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office by calling (304) 267-7000.
