BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. – A westbound pickup truck collided with two eastbound cars on Interstate 64 Friday, killing four South Point, Ohio residents and injuring at least three other people.

The cause of the 3:58 p.m. accident, which occurred about 18 miles east of the Kentucky line – was under investigation. However, WCHS-TV reported the pickup truck lost control, crossed the median, struck one car, then the other.

Those who died were in one car and were from South Point, the station said. It identified the victims as Tina Brown, 41; her 10-year-old son, Seth; Michael Horan, 21; and Christina Robinson, 19.

The accident closed the eastbound lanes for several hours, according to a Cabell County emergency dispatcher.

Three injured people were taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Huntington with minor injuries but were not admitted, a spokeswoman said.

It was not immediately known if anyone else was injured.

Barboursville police, who were handling the accident, were unavailable for comment Friday evening.
