ONA -- She had worked at Dairy Queen for two years to save money for college, but 17-year-old Tiffany Jackson of Milton won't get the chance to study at Marshall University.
Jackson, who had planned to be a radiology technician, and her close friend Samantha Chadwell, 16, of Ona, both died Sunday morning after a single-vehicle accident on U.S. 60.
The teenagers, both sophomores at Cabell Midland High, spent the night at a friend's house Saturday night, and around
7:30 a.m. Sunday, the car Jackson was driving drifted off the road just east of the old Kiwanisvista Park in Ona.
It appears the car, a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, traveled more than 200 feet in the grass before striking a tree, said Chief Deputy Jim Scheidler of the Cabell County Sheriff's Department. The car was traveling east.
