UPDATE 12/8/15 @ 11:52 a.m.
MASON COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- West Virginia State Police have released the name of a man who died in a crash Monday evening, where fog is believed to be a factor.

The crash happened about 7:10 p.m. at the intersection of Jerry's Run Road and Route 2 in Apple Grove.

West Virginia State Police tell WSAZ Marvin Mayes, 61, of Gallipolis Ferry, was a passenger in a car and died in the crash.

The driver, a 50-year-old woman, was pulling onto Route 2 from Jerry's Run when her car was hit by an oncoming vehicle.

State Police say the woman was cited for failure to yield right of way.

No other injuries were reported.

Crews at the scene told WSAZ the fog was very thick at the time of the crash and the driver apparently did not see the oncoming vehicle when she pulled out.

MASON COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man died Monday night in a two-car crash on W.Va. 2 in Apple Grove, Mason County Sheriff's deputies say.

The crash happened just after 7:10 p.m. at the intersection of Jerry's Run Road.

A car was headed south on W.Va. 2 toward Huntington when another car pulled out from Jerry's Run Road. Deputies say the driver of the car that was pulling onto Route 2 reported they didn't see the other car until it was too late.

Deputies say it appears fog contributed to the crash.

The man who died was in the car that was pulling out from Jerry's Run Road.

W.Va. 2 was closed for a little more than an hour in both directions.

No names are being released at this point.

Rocky Rupe says he was the first person to arrive at the scene following the accident.

"They were talking about the road conditions, that it was foggy out and wet, and they didn't see one another," Rupe said.
