An accident involving a minivan and a U.S. Postal Service 18-wheeler left one woman dead Friday afternoon.

The woman was driving a Mercury Villager minivan south on Misty Willow near Willowbrook Mall around 3:45 p.m. when she failed to yield at a stop sign, a Houston Police Department spokeswoman said. The 18-wheeler, which was heading northbound on Willow Place, struck the minivan.

The minivan driver, who is not being identified pending notification of next of kin, was taken to Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, where she later died. A passenger in the van and the truck driver also were taken to the hospital, but their conditions were unknown.
