Two Seriously Injured in Buchanan County Crash

Two people were seriously injured in a crash in Buchanan County on Saturday night.

It happened on Highway 20 at the Winthrop exit a little before 8 pm. The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office says an eastbound vehicle crossed through the median and over the westbound lanes, rolling over multiple times and coming to rest in the north ditch.

Two people suffered serious injuries. One person was airlifted from the scene; the other was transported to an area hospital before being airlifted as well.

Names are being withheld until family members are contacted.

Authorities say the westbound lanes of Highway 20 had to be shut down for about an hour while the scene was investigated and the roadway was cleared of debris.

The accident remains under investigation at this time.
