A 45-year-old Safety Harbor woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of McMullen-Booth Road and Main Street Friday morning.

Dianne Paulsen was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Paulsen was in a Ford compact car and was turning south onto McMullen-Booth from Main Street when she was hit by a northbound Dodge pickup truck driven by 41-year-old Joel Valerius of Palm Harbor about 9 a.m.
