CHEAT BRIDGE, W.Va. (AP) -- An emergency services 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 in eastern West Virginia.

Pocahontas County emergency services director Shawn Dunbrack said two passenger cars on the Durbin & Greenbrier Railroad train overturned in the accident at 1:30 p.m. Friday along U.S. Route 250 near the Pocahontas-Randolph county line.
