The coroner said a man, 21, died in a collision with a garbage truck. The man was driving a sedan. The trash truck driver was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, but is not believed to be injured.
Police have not said what caused the crash. Firefighters, AMED and Altoona Police Officers remained on the scene as of 7:00 am.
Morning traffic will likely be snarled in that area.
