PROSPECT — Fire officials say one person has died in a dump truck collision in Prospect.

WZON-AM says the truck and a car collided Wednesday morning, killing the driver of the car and forcing the closure of Route 1A in Prospect.

Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton says the car crossed the center line on a clear, straight stretch of highway. He says a witness corroborated the dump truck operator’s version.

The dump truck ended up in a ditch and the car was mangled. A volunteer firefighter who lived near the scene said it was not raining at the time when he heard the impact.
