Department of Public Safety Officer Tiffany Harold said a Budget truck driven by the woman was sideswiped by a Swift semi-truck.

"The Budget truck was eastbound and had pulled off to the side of the road and the driver was attempting to make a U-turn in the highway," Harold said. "The Swift truck was coming along behind it and couldn't get stopped in time and collided with the Budget truck.""
