EAGLEVILLE, Pa. (AP) - One person is dead after trucks hauling human waste and makeup materials collided, spilled their cargo and sparked a fire outside Philadelphia.

Police say the tanker and tractor-trailer crashed around 6 a.m. Monday on South Park Avenue in the Audubon section of Lower Providence Township.

They say the driver of the sewage tanker became trapped in his cab and died. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not hurt.

Traffic was redirected from the area. Police called in hazmat crew but no homes were evacuated.

Lower Providence Township is about 20 miles northwest of downtown Philadelphia.
