A woman was killed and two men were seriously injured Tuesday night in a head-on crash on Kuhio Highway in Kilauea, Kaua'i.

Kaua'i County officials identified the victim as Gloria Agcaoili, 70, of Koloa.

She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 38-year-old Koloa man.

Officials said a preliminary reported indicated that a vehicle driven by a 47-year-old New Jersey man was traveling north on Kuhio Highway when he crossed the center line between mile markers 22 and 23 in Kilauea about 5:17 p.m. and collided with a southbound vehicle driven by the Koloa man.

Agcaoili, a passenger in the southbound vehicle, died at the scene.

The New Jersey man was the sole occupant of his vehicle.

The two men were transported to Wilcox Hospital for treatment. Neither sustained life-threatening injuries.

Agcaoili is the sixth traffic fatality on Kaua'i this year.

The southbound lane of Kuhio Highway was closed following the crash. One lane of traffic was open in both directions using a shoulder lane. The highway was reopened at 8:05 p.m.
