West Virginia State Police responded to a two vehicle accident near the Interstate 79 and Interstate 68 split in Monongalia County just after 1 p.m. Monday.

Two vehicles traveling north on Interstate 79 made contact, sending a white sedan with four people inside off the west side of I-79 and into the median. The other car went over the embankment, although the driver was able to exit the car safely and was transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital to be checked out. The cause of the accident isn't clear, although troopers believe it may have been due to the weather.

State police are investigating.
