HICO, WV (WOAY) – An Ohio couple is facing serious charges in Fayette County.
Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident on Rt. 19 in Hico.
Rachel and Robert Day along with three children were on their way to Florida when they were involved in an accident. Two of the children were flown to Woman and Children’s Hospital in Charleston with serious injuries. The third child and the two adults were taken to Plateau Medical Center for treatment.
Officers investigating the accident say it appears the children were not in proper car seats. And it looks like one of the kids was possibly ejected from the vehicle.
Police also believe the adults had taken suboxone, which was not prescribed to them.
The Day’s are currently charged with Child Neglect and Child Endangerment. They will now await court proceedings. The children are in the custody of Child Protective Services.
