VIENNA, W.Va. (WTAP) - Charges will likely be pressed following a four-vehicle crash on Grand Central Avenue Tuesday morning.

Vienna Police Chief Mike Pifer said the wreck was caused by a blue 2016 Honda HRV in the southbound lanes that went left of center and hit a trash truck, causing it to turn onto its side. The HRV then careened into a third vehicle and ended up in the northbound lanes. A fourth vehicle was damaged when it ran into debris from the wreck.

Pifer identified the driver of the HRV as Trina Richards of Marietta. He said she was the only one hurt in the crash and that her injuries were not life-threatening.

Police are still investigating why Richards went left of center, but Pifer said charges are expected. He said drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the crash and the charges would be for a traffic offense.

The Vienna Police Department, the Vienna Fire Department and St. Joseph’s Ambulance Services responded to the scene.
