Taylor Lester, 20, of Oceana, West Virginia, was treated and released Thursday from WVU Medicine Camden Clark, after a crash on Route 14 in Mineral Wells on Wednesday.

Crystal Atkinson, 40, of Sandyville, West Virginia and a third, un-identified person are still being treated for their injuries from the crash.

Three people are hospitalized with injuries after they were involved in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday night in Wood County.

The Wood County 9-1-1 Center says the crash happened just before 9:00 p.m. Wednesday, at the intersection of Pike Street (Route 14) and the Mineral Wells exit of Interstate 77.

According to the Wood County Sheriff's Office, Crystal Atkinson, 40, of Sandyville, West Virginia, was turning left onto Pike Street from the I-77 Southbound off-ramp.

That's when her vehicle was hit by a Jeep Liberty driven by Taylor Lester, 20, of Oceana, West Virginia, after witnesses say Lester ran a red light at the intersection.

Deputies say three people were injured in the crash and are being treated at WVU Medicine Camden Clark Medical Center in Parkersburg.

The Wood County Sheriff's Office, Mineral Wells Volunteer Fire Department, and Camden Clark and Saint Joseph's ambulance services all responded to the scene.
