Greenbrier man killed in single-vehicle accident

A Ronceverte man was killed after a single vehicle accident Wednesday evening, according to the Greenbrier County Sheriff’s Department.

Keith McCoy, 39, was pronounced dead after emergency responders were dispatched to the scene of the wreck, Sheriff Jim Childers said.

The wreck took place just before 8 p.m. on U.S. 19, just south of the W.Va. 63 Monroe Draft intersection, Childers added.

Childers said an investigation into the incident indicates the driver lost control of his vehicle while entering a turn, which caused the vehicle to travel off the roadway, striking a tree before rolling several times in a field.

Excessive speed and alcohol are said to have been a contributing factor, Childers added.

Cpl. G.R. Workman is the investigating officer and was assisted by Cpl. D.W. Hedrick. Ronceverte Police along with the Ronceverte Fire Department and Fairlea EMS responded to the scene.
