A log truck collided with a passenger train Friday afternoon in West Virginia, killing one person and injuring 66 others, a local emergency official said.

At least 12 people suffered serious injuries, said Randolph County emergency services director Jim Wise.

The incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. ET in the county of about 30,000 people in the east-central part of the state, said Shawn Dunbrack, the emergency management director in neighboring Pocahontas County.
