One Man Dead; Route 250 Still Closed After Accident

Marion County Sheriff's Deputies say 24-year-old Joseph Noto died in an auto-pedestrian accident. It happened just before 10 a.m. Tuesday on Route 250, near Woods Boat House. Marion County sheriff's deputies say Noto ran out of gas, parked along the road and started walking south towards the interstate.

That's when a tractor-trailer headed north came around a turn and lost control. The truck hit Noto, and caused two other cars to crash, and led to a five car pileup, deputies said.

Noto died at Fairmont General Hospital. Four other people suffered minor injuries. Source
