SMYRNA, Del. (AP) -- Delaware State Police say a woman was killed and two people were injured when a driver lost control of her car on a wet and snowy road.

It happened about 10:50 a.m. Tuesday on Route 1 near Smyrna. Troopers say 78-year-old Brigitte Best of Berlin, Md., was traveling north on Route 1 when she lost control of her car, which traveled across a grass median and into the southbound lanes.

Police say Best's car hit a van driven by 25-year-old Leonardo Cruz of Elkton, Md.

Best was pronounced dead at the scene. Cruz and a passenger in his van, 42-year-old Rene Vazquez of Elkton, Md., were taken to Christiana Hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening.

The crash is under investigation.
