A woman died Saturday morning when her sedan skidded, then was hit by a truck on southbound Interstate 15.

The accident occurred, according to a witness interviewed by OnScene TV, after the driver’s car started to hydroplane on the wet freeway south of Camino del Norte.

Her car turned toward the No. 4 lane, then the driver apparently over-corrected and the car spun across the freeway and was hit on the driver’s side by a truck.

The car then went into the center divider, and a chain reaction crash of other vehicles followed.

The victim died at the scene of the 7:40 a.m. wreck.

The Poway Fire Department and California Highway Patrol responded to the call for aid. The authorities kept three lanes open on the southbound side while the investigation continued.
