Man dies in Logan Township crash

An Altoona man was killed when his pickup truck and another pickup collided early Sunday morning on East Sixth Avenue between Greenwood Road and City Beverage of Altoona.

David W. Eaken Sr., 60, was traveling south on East Sixth Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when his vehicle crossed the center line and struck another pickup driven by a woman, Logan Township Police Chief Ron Heller said. The woman was not injured.

The Eaken pickup then struck the side of a tractor trailer cab, which was parked along the road, Heller said.

Eaken, who was pronounced dead at the scene by Blair County Deputy Coroner Jeff Guyer, had to be extricated from his vehicle, Heller said.
