ADA, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a woman who had stopped to pick up a fishing tackle box that had fallen onto a state highway was struck and killed by a semi.

The OHP says 39-year-old Rochelle Stormoen died in the accident Friday.

An OHP report says Stormoen stopped in the inside lane of Highway 1 near Ada to retrieve the tackle box that had blown out of a boat being towed by another vehicle. The report says that while Stormoen was outside of her vehicle, she was struck by the semi.
