Accident near Peebles injures two

Two people were injured in a collision near Peebles on Monday, Oct. 19. Ohio State Highway Trooper Josh Hunter responded to the accident at the intersection of Portsmouth Road and SR 32/The Appalachian Highway.

According to Trooper Hunter at about 2:21 p.m. a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze was traveling southbound on Portsmouth Road when it failed to stop at the intersection.

The Chevrolet was driven by Chantell Clagg of Crown City, Ohio.

Investigators said that Clagg drove into the path of a westbound tanker truck carrying propane gas. The truck, a 2004 Peterbilt was driven by Clarence Vallance of Catlettsburg, Ky.

According to investigators Vallance swerved in an effort to avoid hitting the car. He lost control of the truck, the cab and trailer separated and both were rolled onto their sides, the trailer in the medium and the truck on the eastern bound side of 32.

Clagg was trapped inside the car and had to be removed with mechanical tools. She was air lifted to Huntington Cabell Hospital.

Vallance was taken to the Adams County Regional Medical Center by the Peebles Life Squad.

Trooper Josh Baker also responded as did the local HazMat Unit.

Only a small amount of propane was spilled onto the highway. The propane had to be transferred from the tanker to smaller trucks before the tank could be removed. The process took most of the night. The highway reopened at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

This 2014 Chevy Cruze was demolished in an accident with a fuel tanker on the Appalachian Highway near Peebles.
