A Weatherford woman was reported killed and two people, including a child, transported to area hospitals following a wreck Wednesday afternoon south of Weatherford. 

The wreck occurred around 1:40 p.m. on FM Road 51 south of the State Highway 171 split when a pickup traveling southbound crossed into the northbound lanes due to an as yet undetermined reason and struck a northbound passenger car head-on, according to DPS spokesman Lonny Haschel. 

Fe Santistevan, 68, who was reported to be an occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before 2 p.m., according to information from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office.  

Another person involved in the wreck was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth and a child was taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth. 

The highway was closed as troopers investigating the wreck remained on scene late Wednesday afternoon. 

Additional details were not immediately available.
