Highway Fatal Accident

A head-on collision on Highway 50 west of Silver Springs killed a woman Thursday morning. About 11:00, a woman driving east in her car drifted across the highway to the westbound lanes, sideswiped a pickup truck and slammed head-on into a mostly-empty diesel tank truck.

The drivers of the trucks were not seriously injured, but the woman was killed.

Debris from the accident shut down Highway 50 in both directions for several hours, but drivers were still able to get through on a nearby dirt road.
