A music teacher from Baton Rouge, Louisiana died tragically Monday, after she was struck by an 18-wheeler in Copiah County, Mississippi.

Victim Had Stopped to Assist in Earlier I-55 Crash

The horrific accident occurred shortly after 2:00 p.m. in the southbound lanes of Interstate 55.

According to the Mississippi State Police, the 52-year-old woman had stopped to assist a driver in an earlier crash.

Apparently, she was struck by a logging truck on the way back to her vehicle and died at the scene.

The 18-wheeler went on to collide with six vehicles.

Emergency crews transported two injured motorists to a local hospital.

So far, however, authorities have not released any other information on those individuals or their condition.

The woman killed in Monday’s tragic crash had taught piano at Baton Rouge High School for over 20 years.
