Kanawha County deputies said a multiple-vehicle crash in the Quincy area over the weekend injured 10 people, including a mother and her five children.
The wreck happened about 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Quincy Hollow and U.S. 60, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.
A pickup truck driven by Heather Marchal, 29, of Campbells Creek, struck a vehicle in front of her that was stopped at an intersection, deputies said. The impact forced the vehicle that was struck into another vehicle ahead of it, causing damage to three automobiles. The release said Marchal, her five children, ages 8 months to 11 years, and four occupants of the other vehicles were transported to area hospitals.
During an inventory of Marchal’s vehicle, deputies said, indications of illegal drug use were found. Pending testing at the West Virginia State Police laboratory, one of the substances was identified as heroin, the release said.
Questions also were raised about the use of child safety seats in Marchal’s vehicle. Also, the West Virginia Division of Human Resources Child Protective Services sent investigators to the hospitals Sunday night.
No charges currently have been pursued, but an investigation is ongoing into circumstances surrounding the crash. Anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy S. W. Hunter at 304-357-0169.
