A 72-year-old Anahola woman died following a head-on crash on Kapaa Bypass Road Tuesday afternoon.
Police identified the woman as Lynette Lanning.
Lanning was driving a Mazda sedan south of Crossroads Christian Fellowship on Kapaa Bypass Road around 4:30 p.m. when she was hit by a 21-year-old Kapaa man driving north in a Chevrolet pickup truck.
Kauai officials said the pickup crossed the center line.
Lanning was in critical condition when she was transported to Wilcox Hospital, where she died.
Her 44-year-old, male passenger from Anahola and the pickup truck driver were taken to Wilcox with non-life threatening injuries and were released Tuesday night.
Police continue to investigate the cause of this crash.
