One man is dead and another is recovering Thursday afternoon following an early morning accident in Parkersburg.
The accident happened just before four o'clock at the intersection of 8th and Juliana streets.
The initial investigation by the Wood County Crash Team indicates 32-year old Robert C. Williams of Belpre drove his car through a red light while travelling west on 8th Street.
Williams' car was struck in the driver's side door by a trash truck travelling north on Juliana Street.
Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.
The trash truck's driver, Ernest Augustine of Parkersburg, was transported to Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital for minor injuries.
It took members of the Parkersburg Fire Department, Wood County Crash Team and the Department of Transportation almost two hours to reopen the intersection.
If you or someone you know witnessed the accident, you're asked to call Sgt. Elliott at the Parkersburg Police Department. The number is (304) 424-8444.
