A woman who was killed in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 70 has been identified as a Fort Riley soldier.

TheĀ  military installation identified the victim Tuesday as Pfc. Coral Lynn Clark. The 24-year-old was a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear specialist from Fort Worth, Texas.

Clark joined the Army in March 2014. She was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade at Fort Riley.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says she was riding in a Honda Civic on Sunday when a Kia Sorento that was headed in the wrong direction collided head-on with the Honda.

Clark died at a hospital from her injuries. Both drivers also were injured.

The crash shut down the interstate for several hours.
