ORIGINAL REPORT: BRAMWELL (WVVA) - Three people were killed Wednesday when the sedan they were traveling in collided with a truck on Route 52 near Bramwell.

All three people in the sedan were killed. A driver and passenger in the truck were transported to the hospital with injuries.

Both lanes of Route 52 were closed for hours as crews worked to clear the scene.

The victims have not been identified at this time.
