WILLARDS, Md.- Maryland State Police says one person is dead after a car and a dump truck collided on Route 50 westbound at Woodyard Road in Willards.

Troopers received the call to respond at around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. According to police, the preliminary investigation revealed that a 2011 Toyota Camry, driven by 67-year-old Charles Legagneux, of Indian Head, MD, pulled out onto Route 50 and failed to yield the right of way to the dump truck heading westbound, driven by 47-year-old Donald Hayes, of Milford, DE.

The two vehicles collided and the dump truck overturned. 

According to Lt. Ryan Bricker of Maryland State Police, Hayes was pronounced dead at the scene.

Legagneux was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, according to Bricker. There is no word yet on the extent of that driver's injuries. 

Route 50 westbound was closed for several hours while crews investigated and cleared the scene. It has since reopened. 

The cause of the crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
