WACO -- A 64-year-old Waco woman is dead after a fiery crash Tuesday afternoon at Bosque and New Rd.

It happened just before noon.

Police say the woman was in her Dodge Neon turning left on New Rd. from Bosque. That's when 26-year-old Jacob Turner hit her in a Ford Explorer.

Police say the impact was so forceful it caused the Dodge gas tank to rupture and catch fire.

Bystanders put out the fire and the fire department extinguished the flames that spread to the grass.

The name of the woman is not being released until notification of family has been completed. The cause of the collision is still under investigation. Accident Reconstruction and Waco P.D.'s Victim Services were called to the scene to assist.
