Sep. 19—HIGH POINT — A Lexington woman was killed Saturday afternoon when her car was hit by a pickup after its driver lost control of it, police said.

Sunshine Nichole Williams, 21, of Lexington was driving a 2006 Scion north on Interstate 85 Business, also known as U.S. 29, near Baker Road just before 2:15 p.m. when her car was hit by a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado, the High Point Police Department said.

The Silverado had been going north on U.S. 29 when the driver, Joshua Nicholas Anderson, 26, of Archdale, ran off the left side of the road, overcorrected and then lost control, and the Silverado went across the highway's grass median, overturned and struck the Scion, police said.
