MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Claims for vehicle damage caused by road conditions cost the West Virginia Division of Highways more than $22,000 in 2012.
 
The state Court of Claims awarded a total $22,416 to motorists who filed claims against the DOH. The court also ordered the DOH to pay $12,601 to two people for claims related to maintenance failure.
 
The Dominion Post reports that the road-related claims included tires and wheels damaged by potholes.
 
Rachel Rinehart of Preston County filed a claim for damage after her car slid on a patch of ice and into an embankment in January 2011. She was awarded $375.
 
Rinehart says the accident wouldn't have occurred if the DOH had treated the road with cinders.
