Original post:
Bridgeport Police advise that Route 50 East in the area of Baker Hughes/Crystal Ridge is closed due  to a motorcycle accident and subsequent oil spil. Motorists traveling east on Route 50 are asked to use Route 131 to Route 279 (Route 76 is open). Motorists traveling west on Route 50 are asked to travel Route 279 to Route 131. The road closure is necessary in order for the Department of Highways to clean up accident debris and spilled oil.  
Units were dispatched to the accident scene at 4:53 p.m. after two motorcycles ran off the roadway. Three patients were transported to United Hospital Center. Bridgeport Fire/EMS and Bridgeport Police responded. Also alerted to the accident were Anmoore EMS and Harrison County EMS. 
Motorcycles were removed by Dan Riggs Towing.
