A Crane woman was killed in a two-vehicle collision at 5:50 p.m. Oct. 16 at State Loop 338 five miles south of Odessa in Ector County.  

A Texas Department of Public Safety news release said preliminary investigation indicates a 2016 Nissan Sentra, driven by Wendy S. Bryan, 40, of Crane, was traveling south on State Loop 338.  

A 2012 Freightliner truck-tractor towing a semi-trailer driven by Johnny E. Johnson, 54, of Odessa, was traveling north on State Loop 338.  

The Nissan entered the northbound lane and struck the truck-tractor head-on, the release said.
