A woman was killed this morning when the car she was driving collided with an eighteen wheeler. The log truck overturned, spilling its cargo across the road, and shutting down a portion of Route 9 for the morning.

The collision was reported just after 6:30 this morning, near the town of Wesley. Police say the car and log truck collided nearly head-on and the driver of the car was killed instantly. Two people in the truck were not hurt.

There's no word yet on the identity of the driver or which vehicle crossed the center line. At last report, officials were about to open one lane of Route 9 to traffic.
