A 69-year-old woman died in a head-on collision Friday night in Lithia Springs, said Lieutenant Paul Cosper, public information officer with the Georgia State Patrol.

Virginia Mitchell, of Lithia Springs, was traveling west on Anneewakee Road at about 7:20 p.m. when her Nissan was struck by a pickup truck driven by 46-year-old Ronald Watson, said Cosper. Watson’s truck crossed the center line, according to Cosper.

Cosper said alcohol was not a factor and a Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is now investigating the accident.
