Monday at 11:30 p.m, on the Sandy Hook Bridge over the Potomac River blocked traffic for traffic traveling over U.S. Route 340 for over 12 hours, Maryland State Police reported Tuesday. The bridge, which is un- dergoing repairs, was only open to one-lane traffic at the time and work crews were on the job well into Tuesday afternoon in an attempt to clear the roadway for vehicles once again. The westbound flatbed Srailer truck was loaded with flat steel and was being driven by Ken- neth Gregory, of Buckhannon, Va. The rig came down the hill to the bridge, ran a red traffic signal and then collided with another vehicle slamming into the bridge. The truck ripped out over 100 feet of iron railing on the bridge before the cab split apart from its load and then flipped over the bridge. The cab and its driver then fell 75 feet from the span mnto a number of utility cables which caught the cab, depositing it onto the main B&O tracks with a slightly softer impact. Pinned in the wreckage for some time, Gregory was finally extricated and taken to Frederick, Md., Memorial Hospital. The driver was reported in good condition Tuesday morning. Maryland State Police cited Gregory for failure to stop for a red traffic signal: County Commissioners Are Critical Of Some Political Advertisements Comments The five members of the Jefferson County Commission took time from their busy schedule Thursday, May 4, to go on record criticizing some of the rags-information carried in some of the public political statements about the County Commission.

However, some of the candidates made making public statements, both on radio and in the newspapers, charging that the members of the present County Commission are guilty of violating West Virginia State Law. These accusations are untrue, malicious and libellous. This County Commission is not now, and has never, conducted business meetings in violation of the provisions of Article 9A, Chapter 6 of the West Virginia Code (Sunshine Act.) "Neither is the County Commission in violation of any law requiring the issuance of automobile license renewal at the County level. Provision of this service is the responsibility of the Sheriff. "Exception must also be taken to charges that this Commission. is interfering with the operation of other offices in requiring purchase orders. West Virginia Law requires the County Commission to verify, authenticate and determine the necessity of all goods and ser- vices purchased with County funds. If approved, the Com- mission must affix its signature certifying the accuracy of the bills and the necessity of the goods and services ordered. The State Tax Commissioner, acting in his capacity as the chief in- specter and supervisor of public officers, has insisted that the County Commission institute such a system in order to prevent further occurences of double payment, overpayment and payment for goods which are unnecessary or illegally purchased.
