W.Va. state trooper seriously injured during traffic stop
From staff reports

PARKERSBURG-A West Virginia State Police Trooper was seriously injured during a routine traffic stop Saturday evening when he was struck by another motorist.

Reports from dispatchers said the incident occurred at the intersection of West Virginia 47 and Newark Road in Ritchie County. Area residents calling The Parkersburg News and Sentinel said Newark Road had been closed to traffic. There were calls on police radios about an officer down in Ritchie County.

Dispatchers with the West Virginia State Police said as of 10:45 p.m. no information was available regarding the trooper’s identity or condition.

Dispatchers at the Wood County 911 Center said Wood County law enforcement officers were called out around 9 p.m. to keep the roadways to Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital clear. Weather conditions Saturday evening may have precluded the use of a helicopter for transportation.

The dispatcher said a trooper had been injured, but no other information was available.

Calls to the state police public information officer for confirmation were not returned late Saturday.

A hospital spokeswoman referred questions about the incident to the Wood County detachment of the state police.
