DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A 41-year-old California woman was killed Friday after she lost control of a pickup truck on an icy highway, slid across the median and hit a tractor trailer.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the woman was heading west on Interstate 94 three miles east of Dickinson just before 8 p.m. Friday. Her truck slid across the median into the eastbound lanes and hit the tractor trailer, and she was thrown from the pickup.

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital but died. Troopers have not yet released her name.

The driver of the tractor trailer, 39-year-old Jose Cruz of Moses Lake, Wash., was not injured.

This crash remains under investigation.
