    A busy Pittsburgh bridge was closed following a pedestrian accident involving a dump truck that has left one person dead and injured two.

    Public safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said one pedestrian died and a second was critically injured after being hit by the truck at the Smithfield Bridge and East Carson Street. The busy intersection is near Station Square, a former railroad station that's been redeveloped as a shopping and entertainment complex just south of downtown.

    The driver of the truck was also taken to a hospital, though it's unclear how or how badly that person was injured, Toler said.

    The incident happened about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.

    One pedestrian died at the scene while the other was taken to UPMC Mercy hospital with a head injury.
