A man driving in St. James was killed when his car collided with a garbage truck early Wednesday morning, Suffolk County police said.

The man driving eastbound, who was not identified, died at the scene, police said. The driver of the garbage truck was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said they do not yet know if the crash was weather related.
