A Tennessee woman died in a crash Friday on Highway 72 just west of Corinth.

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.
