Her husband, Marvin Reese Stone, 78, was also in the car and was critically injured, Wilson said.

He was flown to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center where he later died, Wilson said.

The woman driving the pickup suffered a leg injury and was also taken to Hillcrest, Wilson said.

The elderly couple was from Freestone County, Wilson said.
