Turner lost control as he brought the truck back onto the road, crossed over into the other lane and hit a sport-utility vehicle driven by Michelle Cline, 27, of Madisonville. The fire truck went off the road and overturned.

Cline was pronounced dead at the scene.

Turner, also of Madisonville, was treated at a local hospital.
