CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — An emergency official says one person was killed and more than 60 others were injured in a collision between a logging truck and a train taking passengers on a scenic tour of fall foliage in West Virginia.

Emergency services director Jim Wise in Randlph County says at least three people were critically hurt. Wise says 21 were taken to a hospital by ambulance and 45 others were taken there by bus with lesser injuries.

Pocahontas County emergency services director Shawn Dunbrack said two passenger cars on the Durbin & Greenbrier Railroad train overturned in the accident. Authorities say the collision occurred Friday afternoon along U.S. Route 250 in the eastern part of West Virginia.
