JANE LEW -

A three vehicle collision on Saturday sent one man to the hospital.

It happened at approximately 2:36 p.m. at the 105 mile marker on Interstate 79 near Jane Lew in Lewis County.

The Lewis County Sheriff's Department said a Scion, driven by Kevin Boman, was traveling north on I-79 where it went off the roadway twice. It then crossed the median into the southbound fast lane and hit a Central Cab Company tour bus from Waynesburg, Pa. It then rolled several times and landed upright in the median, according to the sheriff's department.

Boman was flown by HealthNet to Ruby Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released.

A pickup truck was also involved in the accident. The sheriff's department said it ran into the back of the tour bus. No other injuries were reported.

I-79 was shut down temporarily, but has since reopened.

The Lewis County Sheriff's Department is investigating and said citations could be pending.
