The truck’s driver, who was accompanied by her 20-year-old daughter and her mother, said she attempted to move into the outside lane to give the other driver room to enter the roadway, but the driver of the white SUV continued into oncoming traffic.

The truck spun in the roadway. The SUV flipped into the right-hand ditch; its driver was dragged out of the vehicle before it was engulfed in flames.
