Atalie Martinez was killed Friday evening around 6:30 when her vehicle slammed into a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe making a u-turn on Farm-to-Market Road 665 in Petronila.
Martinez, 26, of Alice was westbound in a 2013 Toyota Scion when Robert Wyman, 24, of Corpus Christi pulled off the road in front of her to make a u-turn.
The oilfield worker pulled out in front of Martinez, and the two vehicles collided.
Martinez was pronounced dead at the scene by Nueces County Medical Examiner Craig Hill. Her body was transported to the medical examiner's office.
Wyman suffered a non-life threatening injury of a cut above his left eye.
Officials said it was raining, and the road was wet at the time of the accident. Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
Trooper David Anguiano investigated the accident.
