CRAIG COUNTY (WSLS 10) - Emergency crews are on the scene of a crash in Craig County. Dispatchers say the accident is outside of New Castle on Route 311 southbound and one lane of traffic is open. A pickup truck ran off the road, hitting some trees but no injuries were reported.

The Craig County Sheriff's Office says it happened about 4:50 a.m. and they don't' believe alcohol or drugs were a factor. The driver will be charged with reckless driving, failure to maintain proper control.
