The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Wagoner woman died after crashing her SUV into a construction truck Tuesday evening.

Troopers said Deborah Crider, 38, was eastbound on Highway 51 near the Verdigris River bridge when her Pontiac SUV struck a slow moving eastbound 2005 GMC truck. The OHP says the truck was part of the equipment working on the highway's center line when it was struck from behind at about 6 p.m. 

Crider was pronounced at the dead at the scene. The driver of the truck, Siser Martinez, 34, of Oklahoma City and a passenger, Arturo Garcia, 34, also of Oklahoma City were not injured.

The trooper's report stated Crider was "driving at an unsafe speed for traffic conditions."
