One person was killed Friday night after a small passenger car and a Waste Management garbage truck collided on W.Va. 9 in Kearneysville, according to West Virginia State Police.

West Virginia State Police Trooper M.L. Dickerson said at around 9:25 p.m. that he could not release any additional information. He said he was waiting to interview the driver of the garbage truck. He also planned to go to Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Ranson, W.Va., where the deceased person was taken.

At the scene, firefighters with the Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department spent about half an hour removing the body from the car.

The front end was torn off of the mangled black car, which had a West Virginia license plate.

Both the truck and the car came to rest in the westbound lane of W.Va. 9, about half a mile west of the Sheetz store. The car came to rest near the rear, passenger-side wheels of the truck.

The accident happened at around 8 p.m.

A portion of the two-lane road, from the intersection of W.Va. 9 and W.Va. 480 to just past the wreck, was blocked off while police and rescue officials were at the scene.
