The Taylor County Sheriff's Department is investigating a vehicle accident in Webster that killed two people just after 6 a.m. Monday.
Jason D. White, 33, of Belington was driving a black Jeep Cherokee traveling on Route 119 north when it left the roadway, traveled a short distance through a meadow, went over an embankment, went airborne for approximately 20 ft. and struck the opposite side of the creek, said Taylor County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Terring Skinner.
White and his passenger, Todd Monroe Lawrence, 42, of Belington, were declared dead at the scene, Skinner said.
There was no sign of White trying to brake or any other evasive maneuvers to stop the vehicle, Skinner said.
The Grafton Fire Department and Taylor County EMS also responded to the scene.
