PITTMAN CENTER (WATE) - A Cosby woman was killed in a pickup truck crash Thursday morning.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says a GMC pickup truck driven by Wanda Cuellar, 45 of Cosby, was heading northbound on Highway 321 near Butler Branch Road around 6:30 a.m. when the truck ran off the right side of the roadway. Cuellar then overcorrected, causing the vehicle to roll.

The truck then rolled over a Ford Focus driven by Susan Cynthia Jane Washington, 28. The Focus then went off the right side of the roadway.

The pickup truck continued to roll ejecting Cuellar, then landing on its wheels in the northbound lane.

Cuellar was killed in the crash. A THP incident report indicates that she was drinking and tested positive for drugs. She was not wearing a seat belt.

Washington was also injured.
