A 21-year-old woman is dead after crashing head-on into a truck on Mississippi 57 on Thursday morning, officials say.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol responded about 9:45 a.m. to the crash near Waltman Road.

It appears the woman’s blue 2004 Nissan Armada was traveling northbound when it crossed the center line and hit a red 2018 Ford F-150 driven by a 71-year-old man, MHP spokesman Chase Elkins said.

The woman, Cheyenne S. Kille of Vancleave, was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
