Another woman, 21, was in the front passenger seat and was taken to the same hospital with minor injuries.
The motorway was closed eastbound for seven hours to allow investigations into the crash to take place.
Police have asked for anyone who was driving in the area at the time to get in touch, particularly motorists with dash cam footage that could help them with their investigation.
Road Policing Sergeant Iain McIntyre said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family of the woman who died and our inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.
“If you can help then please contact us via 101, quoting incident number 3156 of Thursday, 23 December, 2021.”
