An 80-year-old woman from Templeton died Friday afternoon in a crash on Highway 101 just north of Paso Robles, the California Highway Patrol reports.

The CHP identified the woman as Suzanne Tobey of Templeton.

The accident was reported just after 4 p.m. on northbound Highway 101 at Monterey Road north of Paso Robles.

The woman, who was driving a white 2004 Ford Explorer, was hit while turning left from Monterey Road onto southbound 101, CHP reports. A semi-truck heading northbound could not slow down enough in time to avoid hitting her, the report says.

The truck driver, Jose Calderon of Castroville, was not injured in the crash.

The fast lane of northbound Highway 101 was closed during the clean-up and investigation, the report says.
