MANATEE COUNTY - A Largo woman died Sunday morning when her truck overturned on a rural Manatee County highway.

54-year-old Khonesavanh Cichowski died at the scene.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Cichowski was headed westbound on State Road 62 around 6:25am when she failed to hold her lane as the road curved left.

Troopers say she over-corrected to the left and her heavy-duty Chevy truck began to rotate.  The truck crossed the eastbound lanes and struck a ditch, overturned, and struck several trees.

She was wearing her seat belt.
