Hawaii News Now reports that a 23-year-old Kauai woman has died in a two car crash on the Kaumualii Highway in Kekaha. The woman was a passenger in a vehicle travelling eastbound driven by a 25-year-old man. A sedan traveling westbound turned left in front of the Honda, and as the Honda swerved out of the way, he lost control of his vehicle, crossed the centerline and crashed into a Ford Ranger travelling west. Speed is considered to be a factor in the crash.
