The Department of Public Safety reports an accident that started with a vehicle that hit a cow on the highway in Limestone County and that led to a second accident in which a woman from Madisonville died.

The truck had gone east and stood in the middle of the road.

A Dodge SUV went west and swung and collided head-on with the pick-up.

The Dodge driver, identified as Madisonville’s 37-year-old Aundrea Simms, was declared dead on the spot.

No other injuries were reported.
