Denton County woman killed in crash

A Denton County woman was killed Thursday afternoon after a vehicle accident at U.S. Highway 380 and Preston Road in Collin County.

Betty Tucich, 69, of Little Elm, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Frisco city officials.

At 12:51 Friday, a dump truck towing a flat-bed trailer was coming to a stop eastbound on U.S. 380 at the signal light for Preston Road when a silver Honda minivan driven by Tucich rear-ended the trailer, Frisco police said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
