FORKS TWP., Pa. -

A Northampton County man was killed in a head-on accident on Route 611 Friday morning.

The accident, involving a dump truck and another vehicle, happened around 7 a.m. on Route 611, near Danser Hill Road and the Riverview Country Club, in Forks Township, north of Easton.

Justin Roberts, 24, of East Allen Township died at the scene, the coroner said.

The driver of the dump truck was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Fountain Hill, Lehigh Co., but officials could provide no information about the extent of that victim's injuries.

Route 611 was closed between Frost Hollow and Frutchey Hill roads for more than three hours.
