@tessie it might have been on and off but at the time of the wreck it was almost 40 degrees so unless there was an extremely thick layer of ice it shouldn't of been ice involved and old hickory your correct. I watched as Marietta and Parkersburg staff raced to both ends of the highway. but i don't remember the roads being salted just cleaned from the oil spilling out of the semi truck. Not saying its impossible for it to be icy i just don't think it was likely (remember i was traveling not even a half mile away from this wreck) i was stuck in traffic for 3.5 almost 4 hours

It was snowing and there was ice off and on all day. Why wasn't the bridge treated before 10:00P.M.?

After reading this article, I thought that it was obviously written by the Parkersburg staff. There is no mention of Marietta's response. The fact is that the Marietta Fire Department responded with several pumpers and squads. The Marietta Fire Department transported at least two people to Marietta Memorial Hospital. The article is a travesty to our everyday hero's, MFD.
