A Mississippi Highway Patrol official identified the woman who died after a head-on collision Thursday in Kiln.

Cpl. Chase Elkins said June Spell, 73, was traveling southbound on Mississippi 603 in a 2010 Nissan Cube when she was hit by a 2010 Ford F-150 that was northbound but turning left.

The wreck occurred just north of Mississippi 43, Elkins said.

Spell was taken to Hancock Medical Center and was pronounced dead from her injuries, Elkins said.

Spell had a Louisiana driver’s license, but she and her husband were living in the Kiln, said Teresa Nolan, Spell’s granddaughter.

Nolan said Spell was on the way to pay the water bill when the wreck occurred.

The driver of the Ford F-150, a 60-year-old man from Grand Isle, Louisiana, was not injured.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, Elkins said.

The crash is still under investigation.
