A woman was killed in an early morning wreck near Frankston on Friday.

Authorities tell FOX51 crews on scene that Angela Scott, 41, of La Poynor, was killed when her SUV collided with an 18-wheeler on Hwy. 175, about three miles west of Frankston in Anderson County.

The 18-wheeler was driven by Gregory Dinger, 30, who was driving to Dallas from Lousiana when the crash happened around 7:00 a.m. Dinger was flown to an Athens hospital.

Specifics about the crash are extremely limited, but we do know that the 18-wheeler rolled over on the highway and several emergency crews were called in to assist with the call.

Highway 175 is still partially blocked and traffic moving slowly while crews clear the scene of the wreck.
