LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - One person was killed in a Monday afternoon wreck on Highway 80.

Longview police say a woman died in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Highway 80 and Enterprise Street. She has been identified as Martha Blazek, 65, of Longview, by Longview Police Department.

Judge Tim Bryan, the Justice of the Peace for Precinct 2, said that Blazek was the middle school nurse for the middle school in Pine Tree ISD. He said she had served the district for 27 years and "made a huge impact" and will be greatly missed.

Bryan added that the district will have adequate staff on hand Tuesday to serve staff and students.

Police said that Blazek was making a left hand turn from northbound Enterprise Street. A Dodge pickup was traveling eastbound on West Marshall Avenue when the collision occurred.
