Victim identified in Route 50 accident

Authorities this morning released the name of the person killed in an accident Monday on U.S. 50 east of Parkersburg.

Chad D. Kilburn, 60, Cairo, was killed in the accident at Red Hill Road and U.S. 50, according to Wood County Sheriff Steve Stephens.

Kilburn was driving a 2014 Harley-Davidson three-wheel trike that was in a collision with a 2007 Chrysler Town and Country driven by Leonard Flowers, 72, Elizabeth, Stephens said.

Kilburn was driving west on Route 50 and the van, going east, made a left turn into the trike, causing the driver of the trike to be ejected, the sheriff’s department said on Monday.

The accident remains under investigation by the Wood County Crash Team. Stephens said investigators will speak to prosecutors to determine if any charges are to be filed.
