A 2001 maroon Ford Explorer SportTrac was travelling east on Interstate 20 when it collided with a 2011 white Nissan Quest that was merging onto Interstate 20 EB from NB U.S. Highway 83. The Ford moved off the roadway after the collision, rolled over, and ejected the sole occupant of the vehicle, Marlinda Beasley, a 43 year old female from Hawley, TX.
