Police identified the woman as 33-year-old Tracy Louise White. Her husband, 35-year-old Charles Robert White, was driving the passenger car when their windshield was struck by an angle iron that came off of the big rig traveling in front of the couple’s vehicle.
The piece of iron hit Tracy White in the head and she died as a result of the injuries she endured.
According to police, the driver of the 18 wheeler truck did not stop and officials are still trying to locate that driver and the truck involved in the truck debris accident.
