Name Released in Fatal Accident on 2-Mile Hill


New details on the deadly accident on 2-mile hill in Wheeling. The identity of the person who died has been released.

Ohio County Sheriff Pat Butler says the victim is 25-year-old Nia Pilar Watkins of Columbus.

Sheriff Butler says a 911 call came into his office for deputies to respond to a disabled vehicle along 2-mile Hill just after 5:00a.m. on Wednesday.

Just 15 minutes later while officers were on their way, another call came in to send an ambulance.

Sheriff Butler estimates that it will still take at least four weeks for the toxicology reports to come back for Watkins and the driver of the vehicle that hit her.
