FAYETTE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Two men are recovering after a crash on U.S. 19 in Fayette County.

The Fayette County Sheriff says it happened just before 5 Saturday morning. The one-vehicle crash happened near Glen Jean.

The Sheriff’s Office says the driver of a Chevrolet S-10 pickup lost control and rolled several times, finally stopping in the median.

The driver, 24-year-old Justin Blankenship was taken to CAMC in stable condition. A passenger, 25-year-old Joshua Dancy, is listed in critical condition.

The Sheriff’s Office says alcohol does appear to be a factor, and charges are expected to be filed against Blankenship.
