MORGANTOWN — A Ford F-150 traveling on Canyon Road late Thursday morning ran off the roadway, causing damage to several vehicles parked nearby.

West Virginia State Police Officer J.R. Cellapino, who was one of the responding officers, said the driver of the F-150 was traveling along Canyon Road toward Point Marion Road when he drove off the roadway, hitting a ditch, and causing the vehicle to become airborne.
