It's unknown if there are any additional deaths. Officials said they need to lift the cement truck to see if anyone else was in the woman's car.

The cement truck was heading east on Van Born Road approaching Merriman Road when the woman cut in front of it, causing the truck driver to lose control, according to authorities. The cement truck rolled over, killing the woman, police said.
