It happened Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 70, near Wilsons Mills.

The state Highway Patrol said Lesly Bronfield, 22, was driving too fast for the wet conditions. Her car hydroplaned, crossed the median and hit another car.

Bronfield died at the scene.

The driver of the other car, Marvin Dodd, 48, sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Traffic on U.S. 70 East was backed up while troopers investigated the accident.

    My condolences to the young ladys family. My son is about to take his test and I can only hope something like this does not happen to him.

    The driver that was hit is a Wilson's Mills volunteer fireman! Keep him and his family in your prayers. He should be fine from the information I've received as of now.
