Mourning Two WV Athletes Killed in Friday Crash

Glenville State College will hold a memorial service this week for two athletes killed in a highway accident.

State Police say 18-year-old Kyle Puffenbarger of Upper Tract and 20-year-old Brandi Bowen of Salem were killed Friday on U.S. Route 33 in Barbour County. State Police say a Ford Explorer driven by Puffenbarger went out of control, entered the median and rolled.

Puffenbarger was a redshirt defensive back on the football team. Bowen was a distance runner on the track team.

Glenville State announced Monday a memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Harry B. Heflin Administration Building on campus.

Funeral services are scheduled for Bowen on Tuesday in Salem and for Puffenbarger on Thursday in Franklin. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
