Michelle Delk, 42, of Portland, TN, died after the Pontiac Grand Am in which she was riding attempted to cross oncoming traffic and was struck while turning into the medical center, according to Metro Police.

At least two other vehicles were involved in the collision, and each of the seven occupants in those vehicles, including two children, were not injured.
