WELL KNOWN PRICHARD, WEST VIRGINIA MAN KILLED IN AUTO ACCIDENT ON U.S 52 MONDAY EVENING NEAR FORT GAY

UPDATED: August 24

Reports have identified the person who died in the accident as Herbert Hooser, 40, of Prichard, West Virginia.Reports have identified the person who died in the accident as Herbert Hooser, 40, of Prichard, West Virginia.An automobile accident involving a rollover crash Monday evening on U.S. 52, just north of Route 37 entrance/exit near Fort Gay, West Virginia, claimed the life of a very well known and well-loved Prichard man.

According to the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, the crash was reported around 7:15 p.m. Monday. it involved a vehicle that rolled over an embankment. There was only one individual in the automobile, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Reports have identified the person who died in the accident as Herbert Hooser, 40, of Prichard, West Virginia.

Hooser, who was a graduate of the 1995 class from Tolsia High School, was a very well known and well loved individual in the Pritchard and Fort Gay areas, and in the general eastern Wayne County community region as well.

Hooser is survived by his wife of 6 and 3/4 years, Samantha, and their four young sons, ages 12, 10, 3, and 1.

Both the Fort Gay Fire Department and Louisa Fire Department responded to the wreck scene.

The accident was the second major wreck in two days on U.S. 52 in the Fort Gay area, as the Fort Gay Fire Department responded to an accident scene at the intersection of US 52 and Horse Creek Monday morning just after 8:30 AM., involving a tractor trailer hitting a passenger vehicle. The Louisa Fire Department was initially called for mutual assistance aid assistance, but that was very soon called off, as the wreck ended not as being as dire as was first reported. Local EMS transported one person to a local hospital.

Since the beginning of July, there have been nearly 10 major automobile and/or motorcycle/ATV wrecks on or very near U.S. 52, in and around the Fort Gay area, leaving more than over a dozen individuals seriously injured in those accidents.

UPDATE: 

Herbert Hooser was a Tri-River Transit Authority driver and on duty driving a bus when he wrecked.

According to West Virginia Department of Transportation officials Hooser had dropped all of his passengers at their destinations before the crash.

Wayne County Sheriff's deputies say Hooser apparently drifted off the road, but that the cause of the accident is still under investigation.

The Tri River Transit Authority is a public bus transportation system that transports citizens in Boone, Lincoln, Logan and Wayne counties.

TRI-STATE CLINIC TRIO PLEAD NOT GUILTY

Pretrial hearings set for Dec. 9

LOUISA,Ky. -- A Louisa medical practice and three of its providers who were recently indicted by a Lawrence County grand jury via an investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General's Office on charges of Medicaid fraud and forgery of prescriptions, appeared in court Tuesday morning for their plea arraignments.

Dr. Alfred Baldera, 63, Janice Gauze, 47, and Kevin Gauze, 47, all entered not guilty pleas Tuesday morning before a Lawrence County judge.

Baldera is charged with four Class D felonies including two counts of Medicaid fraud, one count of forgery of a prescription and two counts related to unlawful prescribing of controlled substances. If convicted, he could be facing up to 20 years in prison.

Kevin Gauze also faces up to 20 years, charged with five Class D felonies, including two counts of Medicaid fraud, one count of forgery of a prescription, two counts related to unlawful prescribing controlled substances and one count related to unauthorized procurement of controlled substances.

Janice Gauze faces up to five years for one Class D felony related to unauthorized procurement of controlled substances.

Added to all of the criminal charges, Tri-State Family Medical Center LLC could get up to $20,000 in fines for two counts of Medicaid fraud and one count of forgery of a prescription.

The pretrial hearings for Dr. Baldera and both of the Gauze's' have been set for at 11 A.M., for December 9, 2016.

According to a press release and further interview statements by Attorney General of Kentucky Andy Beshear, the focus of the investigation of Tri-State Family Medical Center started with allegations that between 2010 and 2013, Kevin Gauze and Alfred Baldera fraudulently billed Medicaid for office visits and drug testing where patients were not present.

It is also alleged that during 2016, Kevin Gauze and Dr. Baldera fraudulently billed Medicaid for services utilizing Dr. Baldera as a performing provider when Baldera was not present at the doctor's office.

Additionally, it is further alleged that Dr. Baldera and Kevin Gauze forged Baldera's signature on prescriptions for controlled substances for himself.

Also, it is alleged that Janice Gauze presented prescriptions for controlled substances which were not authorized.

"My office will pursue any and every provider who attemps to steal from the Medicaid Program," according to Attorney General, Andy Beshear. He further stated, "Medicaid is a vital service that our state can afford and must support. My office is committed to protecting Kentucky families and seniors from anyone who would defraud such a critical program."

The fraudulent criminal case involving Baldera, the Gauze's and Tri-State Family Medical Center was investigated by the Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse of the Kentucky Attorney General's Office, with assistance from the Appalachia HIDTA Diversion Task Force, and the Cabinet for Health and Family Service's Office of the Inspector General, Drug Enforcement and Professional Practices Branch.
