I-64 east bound is back open in South Charleston after an accident involving a car and a pickup truck. One person died in the crash.

It happened at about 12:30pm just east of the Kanawha Turnpike eastbound entrance ramp (55 mile marker).

South Charleston Police say the driver of a car ran into the retaining wall and bounced back across the road, hitting a pickup truck and causing it to flip on its side.

Officers say two men were riding in the bed of the pickup truck and were both thrown from the truck when the accident happened. One of the men, Ronald Dunham, 44 of South Charleston, died. The other was taken to the hospital with injuries police don't believe to be life threatening.

Two other men were riding the cab of the pickup. They were also taken to the hospital with what's believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The woman driving the car was not hurt. Police say all of the victims are adults -- and no other names are being released

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department reconstructed the accident, so the interstate was down to one lane--and backed up for miles. Dispatchers report all lanes are back open now.
