WALNUT, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Highway Patrol says a Walnut woman was fatally injured in a Benton County wreck Tuesday night.

Officials responded to the scene of the wreck on Highway 72 near the Benton and Tippah county lines at 9 p.m.

At the scene, troopers say it appeared driver Jennifer Hopkins, 43, was traveling west bound in her 1999 Chevrolet Blazer when she lost control of the vehicle, crossed the median and collided head-on with a 1998 Volvo semi-tractor.

Authorities say Hopkins died at the scene.

An Oklahoma man driving the Volvo was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries sustained in the accident. Authorities say he was later released.

MHP is handling the investigation of the wreck.
