A 76-year-old Weatherford woman was killed after her vehicle was struck by a semi truck on the shoulder of Farm-to-Market Road 51/South Main Street Wednesday.

According to the Weatherford Police Department, the woman was pulled over on the shoulder for an unknown reason and then began to make a u-turn near BB Fielder Drive.

“A semi truck pulling an empty flatbed trailer struck the elderly female’s vehicle on the driver’s side,” according to WPD Sgt.

No injuries to the truck driver [and] no intoxication or drug related to this accident.”

The woman has been identified as Patsy Caraway Davis, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner.
