One person was killed Friday morning in at the scene of an accident in Ascension Parish.

Around 7:45 a.m., a dump truck and a car collided on Highway 621 between Airline and Highway 73, near Prairieville. 

The truck appeared to have gone airborne after the collision, flipping over and landing in a ditch on its hood.   Witnesses at the scene say the dump truck knocked over some power lines as it flipped over.

The name of the person killed has not been released.   The person who died was inside the car, police said.
