Posted: Updated:

One person has been flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown after a tire flew off of a tractor trailer, and went through the car's windshield.

It happened at approximately 4 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 79 north bound near the 107 mile marker just north of Jane Lew. The Jane Lew Fire Department said the man driving was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital with severe injuries and his passenger, a woman, was transported to a local hospital.

The truck was driving southbound when the tire came loose, traveled across the median and struck the car driving in the northbound lane.
