Highway Patrol Troopers say 60-year-old Debra Dunkle, of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, was killed Monday in a head-on collision involving a vehicle and a dump truck.

According to Trooper C.S. Thompson, the accident happened around 1:20 p.m. Monday on Highway 211, near West Trace.

Dunkle was killed on impact.

Trooper Thompson said it took about three hours to clear the scene.
