A manager of Grantsville's Foodland grocery store was killed when a vehicle in which she was apparently riding crashed against a hillside Saturday night.

Amanda Rogers, 26, of Grantsville was dead on scene as emergency workers from Calhoun EMS and the Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department extracted her from the vehicle.

Ms. Rogers had been an employee of the local grocery store for some time.

State Police reportedly arrested one woman, possibly the driver of the vehicle, late Saturday night, while a second woman was taken to Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center for treatment. Authorities are continuing an investigation regarding the circumstances surrounding the fatality.

Two other occupants of the sports utility vehicle were tentatively identified as Melinda Hicks of Cabot Station and Holly Cunningham of Barnes Run.

The accident occurred about 9:30 p.m. two miles west of Mount Zion (Rt. 16) on rural Barnes Run Road.

Ms. Rogers body has been sent to the West Virginia State Medical Examiners Office in Charleston, according to Stump Funeral Home in Grantsville.
