Beaver, WV (July 19, 2021) – An explosion reported in Raleigh County on Sunday sent one person to a local hospital with injuries. On July 18, emergency crews were called to the site of an explosion incident on Ritter Drive (Route 19).

Reports from local authorities show that a gas explosion occurred at Judy’s lottery parlor located on Ritter Drive during the early evening hours. Investigations found there was a gas leak at the location that caused an explosion to occur. The incident caused some damage to the structure. Crews worked to clear the scene and check surrounding properties for damage. One person involved in the incident was injured. The person was transported to a local hospital for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Explosion Incidents in West Virginia

Explosions throughout the United States have a devastating impact on families. In some cases, material losses are overwhelming. Families who lose their homes, all their possessions, and essentially their livelihoods are forced to start over. As if the immediate consequences were not enough, many victims are left with permanent scarring, muscle damage, and nerve damage following these incidents. These and other severe injuries can dramatically impact the health and well-being of victims. Victims are often left with painful injuries that require immediate surgery and medical care. In many instances, victims have to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation. There is no promise of a full recovery, however. Instead, thousands of people are left with permanent disabilities.

In some instances, victims may have legal options available to help them hold negligent parties accountable.
