A truck accident claimed the life of a 49-year-old Waco woman on Sunday night when she was ejected from the vehicle in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 35.
The woman, whose name was not immediately released by authorities, was traveling south on Interstate 35 at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday when her Ford Explorer veered out of the lane.
She apparently over-corrected which caused the SUV to roll onto the shoulder of the road. As the vehicle rolled, she was ejected.
According to witnesses, the woman was allegedly on her cell phone right before the accident occurred, said Department of Public Safety troopers.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene by McLennan County Justice of the Peace, Kristi DeClutt.
