BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A woman is dead and two others were hurt following a traffic accident Tuesday afternoon in Prentiss County.

It happened before 3 p.m. on Highway 4 two miles west of Booneville.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol says 35-year-old Katie Fast of Booneville was driving west in her 2001 Mercedes when it moved into the opposite lane and collided head-on into an 18-wheeler hauling logs.

Fast died at the scene.  Someone with her in the vehicle was flown to The Med in Memphis with serious injuries.

The truck driver, 37-year-old Michael Gann of New Site, was taken to Baptist Hospital in Booneville where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
