LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – A woman died Tuesday after she was involved in a crash with a dump truck in Lake County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the woman, who is from New York, was driving a Toyota Camry northbound on Cardinal Lane and the dump truck was traveling eastbound on State Road 44 at about 12:05 p.m.

There is a stop sign at that intersection but troopers said it’s unknown if the woman ran the stop sign or pulled out from the stop sign into the path of the dump truck.

Records show the front of the dump truck hit the left side of the Camry.

Chantel Jones, 57, died at the scene of the crash. The 40-year-old dump truck driver was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
