Marnelle Sampson, about 75, of Chloe was in the other vehicle, reported to have received multiple injuries and possible fractures. She was taken to Charleston by ambulance.

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Department is investigating the accident.

A single-vehicle accident on Beech Road sent a car upside down in a creek bed Thursday evening.

A male and female in the vehicle were not injured.
