A foggy wreck on Highway 98 East killed a Magnolia woman Tuesday morning, according to the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
MHP spokesman Trooper Craig James said Nellie R. Dodd, 76, was driving to the Dollar General east of McComb around 9 a.m.
Dodd, who was westbound in a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck, went through the crossover at the intersection of 98 and Candy Lane and missed the entrance to the store.
James said she pulled back into the eastbound lane of the highway when she was struck by a Sanderson Farms 18-wheeler driven by Gregory D. Sullivan, 54, of Magnolia.
Sullivan’s 2020 Western Star tractor-trailer smashed into the passenger side of Dodd’s pickup, tossing it into the ditch in front of the busy store.
James said Dodd was wearing a seatbelt. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Sullivan was uninjured in the wreck.
