My daughter was driving the 1996 buck Regal on I-77 North near chelyan, wv another daughter was in the passenger seat. The rear driver's side wheel broke from the hub, causing the car to veer and eventually hit the concrete median. The crash severely damaged the front left side of the car; it wa stotalled. The crash resulted in injuries to both of my daughters - the driver sustaine D a bump on her forehead, and the passenger hasd a swolen left ankle - preliminary review of the X-rays were negative for a break/fracture. The car was towed to a garage.
