WV - Hunting accident and violation, all in one

According to Brooke County Sheriff Richard Ferguson, the two men were preparing to go hunting near Wellsburg on Tuesday morning. As the father was taking his gun out of their vehicle, the weapon discharged accidentally. His son was hit in the leg and required treatment at a hospital.

The two broke both a basic rule of gun safety and a state law: Never travel with a loaded hunting rifle in a car. Ferguson said that charges may be filed in the case, in an attempt to deter others from breaking the law concerning gun safety and hunting.
