NMC Fire units arrived to find a 207 Pontiac ripped open and crushed by an 18-wheeler dump truck loaded with sand.  The female driver, Chelsea Kelly, 27, who lived not far away, was eastbound on SH 105 toward Cleveland.

According to a witness, the female slowed and turned to avoid the reflectors. With the roads being wet, she lost control and went into a slide. The 18-wheeler, which was westbound, struck her vehicle. DPS investigated the crash. Montgomery County Justice of the Peace Jason Dunn ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.
