A ghost adventure ends up with ten people hurt and one killed

August 9, 2013

A search for the supernatural sends ten people to the hospital and leaves one dead this week. According to the West Virginia Gazette, a pickup truck loaded with eleven people crashed on Wednesday killing a 17-year-old girl.

Early Wednesday morning, 18-year-old Issac Murphy packed ten of his friends into a Ford F-150 pickup truck to go on a ghost hunting adventure to find haunted chimneys in Clay County, West Virginia. While en-route to one of the alleged haunted locations, Murphy lost control of the vehicle, swerved and struck a guardrail sending the truck plummeting down into a stream bed.

Six people were crammed into the cab and five of them were riding in the bed of the truck when it crashed. The only female passenger was 17-year-old Kara Conley who was pinned between the pickup and bank of the creek. She died about an hour after the accident.

Nearby resident and Army Veteran Jeremy Mullins witnessed the crash and called 911 immediately then went to help. Mullins pulled the injured teens from the vehicle and onto his porch and treated their wounds until paramedics arrived.

Police officers found marijuana at the scene and also said that alcohol may have played a role in the deadly crash. Authorities are still waiting for a toxicology report to determine if any of the occupants were intoxicated. So far no charges have been filed against the driver.
