FULTON COUNTY — An 81-year-old Mooreland woman died after she collided with a semi-truck early Wednesday in rural Fulton County, police say.
She was identified as Madonna Mawk, according to Indiana State Police.
State troopers and Fulton County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched about 8:37 a.m. to the intersection of State Road 14 and County Road 1100 West for the crash.
An investigation found Mawk was driving a Jeep east on State Road 14 when she tried to turn north onto County Road 1100 West and hit the semi's driver-side fuel tank.
Mawk was pronounced dead at the scene. She was not wearing a seat belt during the crash, according to ISP.
The driver of the semi,44-year-old Timothy W. Phelps of North Vernon, was cited on federal motor carrier violations for having a radar detector.
Impairment from drugs and alcohol isn't believed to have factored into the crash, police said.
