The pickup lost a wheel Monday morning on northbound I-465 near I-74 on the city's southeast side. The tire bounced over a median wall into the southbound lanes, where it hit the SUV. State police say 43-year-old Crystal Emerick of Angola, was found unconscious with serious injuries and died at a hospital.

Police say one passenger in the SUV was also injured, but conscious and alert, while three back-seat passengers weren't hurt. Investigators are trying to determine how the wheel came off the truck.
