POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A 57-year-old Livingston woman died Monday morning after her pickup left the road way on FM 350 and hit a metal pipe fence.

The woman was identified as Lorie Ellinwood. According to the Texas Department of Public safety accident report information obtained by East Texas News Tuesday, Ellinwood was traveling south on FM 350 when she lost control of her 1998 Mazda B30 pickup.

The pickup rolled over, and its roof hit a steel pipe fence. According to the report, the Mazda slid along the fence for a short period of time. Pictures that appeared on the PolkCountyToday.com Web site show the truck's roof was completely smashed in.

Ellinwood was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

It is believed that Ellinwood overcorrected, which caused her to lose control. The DPS report did not indicate whether or not Ellinwood was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
