An early morning accident Thursday claimed the life of a Tupelo woman.

Bonnie Wilson, 22, died at the scene. The accident occurred about 12:40 a.m. on Coley Road near the Chesterville Road intersection.

Wilson and three other people were traveling north on Coley Road when their car veered into the southbound lane and into an 18-wheeler headed south.

Officials are not sure why Wilson, who was driving the car, left her lane of traffic. An investigation is continuing into the accident, said Capt. Russ Witt, spokesman for the Tupelo Police Department.

The three other people in the car were not seriously injured, Witt said.
