31-year old Shauntrice Jones of Camilla was killed in the crash.

It happened at the intersection of Stage Road and US Hwy 19.

Troopers said that a front tire blew out on a Ford F-250 pickup that was heading south.

The driver, Lennoris Jackson from Thomasville lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic, slamming into Jones' Toyota Camry.
