 A Cumming woman was killed in a crash on Buford Highway on Tuesday night, according to a news release from the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office. 

Alison Flowers, 43, died at the scene of a wreck involving her Hyundai Sonata and a semi truck on Hwy. 20 at the entrance of Lakeland Plaza between Atlanta Road and Georgia 400.

Flowers was traveling west about 9:30 p.m. and entered a left-hand turn lane when an eastbound Freightliner semi-truck  on Hwy. 20 in the right-hand lane entered the Lakeland Plaza intersection on a green light, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office release. 

Flowers failed to yield to the semi-truck and turned in front of it, the release stated. 

The crash closed the eastbound side of Buford Highway and the southbound on-ramp to Ga. 400 for at least two hours.
