A driver and two passengers were taken to Minnie Hamilton Health System at 3 p.m. Thursday following a car crash.

Chief Deputy Carl Ballengee said the driver left State Route 5 and crashed "head-on with a tree," at Cabot Station, west of Grantsville.

The 17-year-old driver, identified as Eric Johnson, reportedly had a broken leg.

Johnson and his mother, Jennifer Southall, were taken to Charleston Area Medical Center, both still under evaluation Thursday night, according to a hospital spokesperson.

Southall was reportedly suffering from problems related to a back injury.

Brady Johnson, age 14, was being treated at Minnie Hamilton Health System.

Ambulances from Calhoun EMS and Minnie Hamilton Health System responded, with the Grantsville VFD.
