The driver then overcorrected back onto the roadway, causing the vehicle to roll towards the east side of the roadway, according to a news release from the Texas Department of Public Safety.
The passenger, identified as Leilani Rose Nicely, 39, of Brownsville, was ejected from the vehicle and taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The male driver, who has not been identified, was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
