One lane of southbound traffic was stopped and the turning vehicle cleared the first lane of southbound traffic and was struck by a vehicle traveling in the second lane of travel. Sadly the female passenger in the turning vehicle passed away from her injuries, the male driver in the turning vehicle was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver and passenger in the southbound vehicle were not injured.
