A Vicksburg woman was killed Thursday when her car collided head-on with a utility truck on Fisher Ferry Road south of its intersection with Naylor Road.

Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey said Brenda Nelson, 55, 587 Lakeside Drive, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision, which occurred about 4:15 p.m. He said the cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma injuries. An autopsy was requested.
