BRIDGETON, Missouri (KMOV) – A woman was killed after a car and trash truck collided in Bridgeton, Missouri Thursday morning.

Police said the victim was driving near the intersection of St. Charles Rock Road and Taussig Road just before 7 a.m. when she crossed the center line and collided head-on with an Allied Waste trash truck.

The victim, identified as Teneacha White, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene.

St. Charles Rock Road was shut down for several hours as crews work to clear the scene, but all lanes have since reopened.

Police continue to investigate what caused White to lose control.

No other injuries were reported.
