The crash was reported at around 5 a.m.
Deputies said the woman was outside of her Chevrolet Silverado after it had stalled on the shoulder.
An oncoming vehicle tried to steer away from her but ended up hitting another vehicle on the passenger side. Both vehicles spun toward the woman and her truck, striking both.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
Both drivers remained at the scene and showed no signs of intoxication, deputies said.
