Police are still looking for the driver that, witnesses say, caused an accident between a semi-truck and a Jeep. The accident closed down West Virginia Route 2 in St. Marys Wednesday for about two hours.

West Virginia State Police officials say the driver of a Dodge truck was heading south on Route 2 when he met an oncoming Jeep. The driver of the truck then swerved across the center line, causing the driver of the Jeep to go off the roadway.

"The Jeep swerved and lost control, came back onto the roadway and the semi was traveling south and the Jeep collided with the semi," says Corporal Jennifer Price of the West Virginia State Police.

Pleasants County Sheriffs Officials say Wayne and Cherie Taylor were riding in the jeep and taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. They are listed in fair condition this afternoon.

The semi's occupants walked away without injuries.
