0 8

A woman was killed Wednesday afternoon when her vehicle was struck by an 18-wheeler in Wilson County, officials said.

Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Deon Cockrell said a trooper was called to the collision at about 1 p.m. at U.S. 181 and FM 775.

A woman was driving south on U.S. 181, investigators said, when she tried to make a left turn at FM 775. Her vehicle was struck by the tractor-trailer in the intersection, Cockrell said.

The woman was transported by EMS to Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville where she later died, authorities said.

Her identity has not yet been released because her next of kin has not been notified, according to DPS.

Troopers are investigating the crash, Cockrell said, noting that they do not yet know all the factors involved in the accident.
