The woman has then gotten out of her vehicle, leaving the hazard lights on.

The exact circumstances surrounding what happened next are unclear at this stage, however three vehicles appear to have been travelling northbound and a collision has subsequently occurred.

The woman, who is aged in her 50s, died at the scene.

The drivers of the other three vehicles, a 42-year-old man, 40-year-old man and a 65-year-old man, were all injured in the incident and transported to hospital.

All drivers were the sole occupants of their vehicles.

Seven cattle were also killed as a result of the incident.
