CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - We have new information about a violent head-on crash that happened late Thursday night in the 5500 block of U.S. 60 near Barboursville.

The Barboursville police chief says the two drivers were both taken to the hospital with serious injuries after being extricated out of their cars by firefighters.

The chief says a man driving west drifted into the opposite lane and struck a woman’s car as she was traveling east.

The sister of Shonna Maynard, who’s from Lincoln County, says she suffered a broken neck, among other injuries, and is expected to have surgery next week.

She has been alert and talking at the hospital though, the sister says.

The Barboursville police chief says they’re looking into the cause, and they’ll be getting medical records to find out if alcohol or drugs were a factor, which is standard practice.
