Posted: Updated:

Fayette County Sheriff's Deputies have identified the third victim of a fatal accident that happened near Mossy on Saturday.

Donna Moran, 52, of Scarbro was killed on Route 612, along with Robert Manning and Edward Miller.  The truck that the three were traveling in rolled over on Saturday night.  One of the victims was pinned underneath the vehicle, the other two were thrown from truck.  All three were declared dead at the scene.


UPDATE: Two names have been released following a deadly single vehicle accident Saturday night on Route 612 just East of Mossy.


The victims of the crash have been identified as Robert Dean Manning and Edward "Eddy" Miller of Scarbro. The third victim was a 52-year-old female from Fayette County who's name and information are not being released at this time pending notification of her next-of-kin.

When crews responded to the scene late Saturday night they found that a Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck was overturned in the middle of the roadway and an individual was pinned underneath the truck. Two other victims had been ejected from the truck and were lying on the roadway. All three were pronounced dead at the scene.

In a press release Sunday Fayette County Sheriff Steve Kessler said the vehicle was traveling East on WV Route 612 and ran off of the roadway.

"When the vehicle re-entered the roadway it began sliding, then overturned and began rolling," said Kessler.

"All three occupants were ejected from the vehicle during the accident."

Investigators are still working on who the driver of the truck was but "alcohol and excessive speed are believed to have been contributing factors," according to Kessler.

The accident remains under investigation by Deputies of the Fayette County Sheriff's Office
