KAPAA — An Anahola woman died from injuries sustained during a head-on wreck on the Kapaa Bypass Road on Tuesday afternoon.
Police identified the victim as 72-year-old Lynette Lanning.
According to a preliminary investigation, a 21-year-old Kapaa man was heading north on the Kapaa Bypass Road near Crossroads Christian Fellowship church about 4:30 p.m., when the Chevrolet pickup truck he was driving apparently crossed the center line and struck an oncoming Mazda sedan.
Lanning, who was driving the sedan, had a passenger in the front seat at the time of the wreck.
Everyone involved in the wreck was taken to Wilcox Hospital for medical treatment.
The driver of the truck and the passenger of the sedan, a 44-year-old Anahola man, both sustained non-life threatening injuries and were released from the hospital Tuesday night.
Lanning was extracted from her vehicle and taken to the hospital in critical condition, where she died later that night.
The south portion of the Kapaa Bypass Road, from the roundabout to the Wailua entrance, was closed from 4:30 p.m. to 8:10 p.m. to allow traffic investigators to process the scene.
An investigation continues.
