UPDATED: Saturday December 7, 2013 8:23 AM

A woman is dead following a crash on Interstate 71.

It happened around 7:45 Friday night.

41-year-old Thuy Lu was a passenger in a Freighliner Tractor driven by 39-year-old Hoang Truong of California.

The Delaware County State Highway Patrol said the semi was traveling in a southbound lane a few miles north of the U.S. 36/37 exit, when Truong lost control.

The vehicle slid across all three lanes of traffic before flipping over into a ditch.

Lu was partially ejected and became trapped under the truck.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troung was transported to Riverside Methodist Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers said speed was a factor in the crash.

Authorities are still investigating.
