KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knoxville police have identified the victim in a deadly head-on crash that happened last week on Middlebrook Pike.

Police say Angela Pressnell, 50, was killed in the crash last Wednesday at the intersection with Ed Shouse Road.

Officers say a large white panel delivery van driven by James Rector, 70, was going eastbound in the westbound lanes and collided head on with a Scion XB driven by Pressnell. She was killed.

Rector was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for a blood test.

Police at the time said it didn't appear that alcohol was a factor in the crash. The investigation is ongoing
