According to reports, the woman was traveling in a Nissan Altima on Windy Hill Road. The woman was driving with her infant and two small children when she lost control of her car. The vehicle crossed the median, directly into the path of a pickup truck. As a result of that accident, the pickup truck was hit by an SUV. The SUV then struck another vehicle.

The driver of the Nissan passed away on scene, as did the 1-year-old child. The two other children in the car were taken to local hospitals. One child was listed as under observation and the other was listed as being in stable condition. A passenger in the pickup truck was also transported to a hospital with injuries.

Others involved in the accident included adults and a child. None of these people reported any injuries and none were transported. There were no charges filed in the crash.
