VICKSBURG, MS (WLBT) - A Vicksburg woman was killed Thursday evening when an out of control eastbound 18-wheeler crossed the median and on to Frontage Road, and landed on her car. 

The accident happened on Interstate 20 at the Halls Ferry exit between 6 and 7 p.m. and backed up traffic for nearly ten miles. At one point, both eastbound and westbound traffic was shutdown.

The woman has been identified as 42-year-old Andrea Thomas.

MDOT cameras show that some lanes have reopened but traffic is still moving slowly.
