A Northampton County man was killed in a head-on accident on Route 611 Friday morning.

The accident, involving a dump truck and another vehicle, happened around 7 a.m. on Route 611, near Danser Hill Road and the Riverview Country Club, in Forks Township, north of Easton.

Justin Roberts, 24, of East Allen Township died at the scene, the coroner said.
