Mother Facing Charges After Crash in Wayne County

WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) – A mother is facing charges after her child was injured in a crash Wednesday.

It happened just before 3 p.m. on W.Va. 152 in Lavalette.

The driver of a Ford F-150 says he was rear-ended by a Chevy S10 and crashed into a utility pole.

Wayne County deputies say the woman who caused the wreck, Sandra Thompson, was driving on a suspended license and had no insurance.

They also tell us her 5-year-old son had no booster seat and was not buckled in.

Deputies say the children did not end up having to be taken to the hospital.

A dog in the other vehicle was left limping.

Neighbors say there have been numerous wrecks in that area.

"You never know when somebody's going to fly around a corner and hit you," Josh Ferguson said.

They cite more businesses being added in recent years, and that after school traffic adds to the congestion.

"People basically need to pay more attention," resident J.R. McCloud said.
