Daily staff reports
Two Winchester residents were transported to separate hospitals following a Wednesday afternoon crash on Interstate 66 in Warren County, according to state police.
Alison Hines, 20, was driving a 2006 Chevrolet pickup west on the highway when it's thought the vehicle hydroplaned, state police spokesman Sgt. F.L. "Les" Tyler said Wednesday night.
"It was raining very hard at the time of the crash," he said.
The truck ran off the left side of the road, into the median and over an embankment before striking some trees, Tyler said.
He said Hines was taken to Winchester Medical Center, while her husband, Ryan Hines, 23, was taken to Warren Memorial Hospital. The extent of their injuries wasn't known.
A 15-month-old boy in the pickup was uninjured, said Tyler, who said the crash was investigated by Trooper C.P. Maddox.
"He attributed the child not being injured [to] the parents properly securing the child in a child seat," Tyler said. "It appears the vehicle hydroplaned because of the heavy rains that were falling at the time."
No charges will be placed, Tyler said.
