A Nicholls woman was killed Monday night in the crash of her pickup truck near Alma, the Georgia state patrol said.
Gidget Tanner, 41, was driving a 2000 Ford Ranger north on Cody Road just after 9 p.m. when she ran off the left shoulder of the road as she was negotiating a curve to the right, the state patrol said.
The truck traveled about 150 before hitting a fence post then a large tree on the driver’s side, the state patrol said.
The vehicle overturned for 88 feet before coming to rest upright, the state patrol said.
Tanner, who was not believed to be wearing safety belts, remained inside the vehicle through the crash, the state patrol said.
She was taken to Bacon County Hospital in Alma but did not survive.
