Sheriff Dave Wedding described the crash as nothing other than an absolute tragedy. The woman crossed over the median near University Parkway, crashing into an oncoming semi.
The semi driver, 61-year-old Daryl Lattner, was killed. Authorities say he tried swerving to avoid the accident but didn't appear to have time to do so.
