BLUEFIELD, W.Va. — A 6 year-old boy and four adults were injured after a Wednesday afternoon accident.

West Virginia State Police Senior Trooper J.R. Tupper told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph it happened at around 5:30 west of the entrance to the Mercer County Airport. Witnesses said a westbound van crossed the center line and hit a Ford F-150 head on.

The 6 year-old boy was transported to a Roanoke, Va. hospital with life-threatening injuries. The boy’s mother was hospitalized with serious injuries. The other two adults were taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Tupper added the investigation continues and criminal charges may be coming. The Bluefield Rescue Squad and Green Valley Glenwood Fire Department responded to the scene.
