A Bryan woman is dead after investigators say a piece of metal debris crashed through the windshield of a pickup and hit her head.

Investigators say an angle iron apparently came off the trailer of the 18-wheeler. The piece of iron crashed through the windshield of the pickup and then struck White. White was taken to the hospital where she died
The driver of the pickup, 35-year-old Charles Robert, was not injured.
