One-car accident claims victim

CHESAPEAKE — A Chesapeake man was killed in a one-car accident on Interstate 79 in central West Virginia.

Mark Busick, 49, was pronounced dead at the scene by Braxton County Medical Examiner Bob Stalnaker Wednesday morning.

According to authorities, Busick was driving a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire north on I-79 at the 50-mile marker near Frametown around 5 a.m. He apparently lost control of the vehicle, which flipped over four or five times. He was ejected from the car and was the lone occupant.

Braxton County Sheriff’s Deputy Jake Dennison investigated the accident.
