Auburn woman dies following collision in Opelika

OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - An Auburn woman is dead following a two-car collision in Opelika Monday evening.

Taylor Webster, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:40 p.m. The accident happened in the 3400 block of West Point Parkway at around 5:47 p.m.

Webster died instantly from multiple blunt force injuries.

It appears that Webster was traveling north on West Point Parkway when she ran off the side of the roadway,  overcorrected, and came back across the highway into the oncoming lane. She then struck a pickup truck head-on.

Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the accident.

The accident remains under investigation by the Lee County Coroner's Office and Opelika police.
