Laramie, Wyo. (AP) A Loveland Woman was killed after a heavy headboard blew out of the bed of a pickup truck and crashed into the windshield of her vehicle in Wyoming.

Wyoming Highway Patrol says the driver of the pickup, 56-year-old Brian Soukup of Livermore, Colorado, was cited for driving with an unsecured load.

The accident happened Memorial Day on Wyoming 230 about ten miles south of Laramie.

The 250-pound headboard blew out of the bed of Soukup's pickup and crashed into the windshield of a Suburban that 54-year-old Lois A. Dewey was driving.

The Suburban went off the road, struck a culvert and rolled over, killing Dewey. A Texas woman in Dewey's vehicle was injured.

The headboard also struck a van, but no other injuries were reported.
