[Developing] A woman died this morning on the Golden State (5) Freeway in Burbank after a piece of a Mack truck or road debris penetrated her vehicle’s windshield shortly after 8 a.m., California Highway Patrol officials said.

Authorities are still working to determine what the object was, but they said she was riding behind the Mack truck at the time of the incident. The object struck the mother, killing her before she arrived at a nearby hospital.

Her husband was driving and her children, who were in the backseat, were uninjured, authorities said.

The accident occurred in the northbound lanes. More information from the California Highway Patrol is forthcoming.
