The Wheeling Police Department is investigating a pedestrian fatality  on West Virginia State Route 2.

At 6:36 a.m., on Thursday, Nov. 7, officers were dispatched for a report of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian, but when officers arrived, a victim could not be located, according to police.

Shortly after, a second 911 call was made at the Interstate 70 Washington Avenue Exit for a vehicle that appeared to be dragging a body.

Further investigation led police officers to believe a woman had been hit by a pickup truck and then dragged by a second vehicle to the Washington Avenue area.

Police said they have located the drivers of both vehicles and are working to make a positive identification of the adult female victim.

The incident is still being investigated.
