BRUSHFORK - A car accident in Mercer County Friday morning sent two people to the hospital.

Deputy J. S. Bish with the Sheriff's Department said around 7:30 a.m. Friday, a truck was traveling north on Route 52 in the Brushfork area when the driver tried to turned left into a driveway across the lane, but a car was traveling south while he was crossing. The truck hit the car in the front end, totaling both vehicles.

Bish said the woman driving the car and her eight year-old female passenger were taken to Bluefield Regional Medical Center. Bish believes the fog in that area could have contributed to the accident.
