A Mableton woman was killed after her Ford collided with a semi tractor-trailer on Friday afternoon.

Barbara Sims, 57, of Mableton was attempting to turn her gray 2012 Ford Fiesta from the Sierra Forest Apartments at 6600 Mableton Parkway northbound when she was struck on the driver’s side door by a red 1998 Freightliner semi tractor-trailer traveling southbound on Mableton Parkway at 1:39 p.m. on Friday.

Sims was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semi tractor-trailer, Moses Asemota, 54, of Conley, was not injured in the collision and is not expected to be charged in the crash, Cobb Police Sgt. Dana Pierce said.
