BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - Two people were killed when a pickup truck hit a power pole in Raleigh County.

Authorities say West Virginia Route 3 was closed after the Monday morning accident.

Media outlets report that power lines were down in the area. As a result, Trap Hill Middle School and Liberty High School were dismissed about 1:20 p.m., which is about an hour early.

Additional details, including names of the victims, were not immediately available.
