On May 10 a Texas woman was killed in an automobile accident that occurred shortly after 9:45 a.m. The collision occurred on Interstate 20 near Rankin Highway. Traffic in the area had been slower than normal due to two minor collisions that had occurred nearby.
A Ford Expedition was hit from behind by a semi-truck that failed to stop. The impact caused the Ford to roll over. The semi-truck then continued and hit the driver's door of a Pontiac Grand Prix in front of the Ford. The 33-year-old driver of the Pontiac was pronounced dead at the scene of the auto accident.
