CHESTER — Two people were sent for medical treatment after a Wednesday morning accident in Meigs County.

Sgt. Delmer Hurd, of the Gallia-Meigs Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, said that the accident occurred at 10:18 a.m. at the intersection of State Route 25 and State Route 7 in Chester Township.

Lori Bearhs, 48, of Pomeroy, was heading eastbound on SR 25 in a 2003 Buick LeSabre when she failed to yield at a stop sign. She was struck by Joey Marshall, 39, of Parkersburg, W.Va., who was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado.

Hurd said no alcohol seems to have been involved, and it is not yet known whether either individual was wearing a seat belt.

Beahrs was transported by Medflight to Cabell Huntington Hospital and Marshall was transferred by EMS to Holzer Emergency Room in Pomeroy. Neither of their conditions are known at press time.
