Coroner Jay Jones identified the woman as Vernell Sellers, 77, of Jackson, Tenn. He said she was originally from Corinth.
The crash happened about 5:35 p.m. on U.S. 72 at County Road 735 near Glidewell Trailer Sales. The Mississippi Highway Patrol said it appeared Sellers attempted to turn off Road 735 onto the highway and entered the path of a westbound 1997 Chevrolet pickup driven by Steven Gray, 34, of Corinth.
Sellers, driving a 2005 Nissan Altima, died at the scene, and Gray was uninjured.
MHP said the investigation remains open.
Funeral arrangements for Sellers are pending.
