6ABC reports that the accident happened just before 5:30 am Friday (July 26) on Route 70 (near Route 541).

CBS 3 reported that the dump truck struck a pole and is leaking diesel fuel in the area. The truck was actually on fire, but that has since been extinguished.

A medevac helicopter responded to the scene, and reports from CBS 3 say that at least one person has been taken the hospital. There is no word on their condition.

As of 8 am, the road (in both directions) remains closed in the area of the accident. Officials say Church Road is the alternate option.
