The 81-year-old woman who was involved in a head-on crash Monday afternoon in the 9300 block of Rea Road has died, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police.
She has been identified as 81-year-old Mildred Sophia Hickling.
It happened on Rea Road between Parks Farm Lane and South Brook Lane, police said. Hickling was driving southbound shortly before 3 p.m. Monday when her Suzuki SX4 strayed into the median, striking a small tree. The vehicle then crossed into the northbound lanes and struck a Honda Odyssey minivan head-on, police said.

The Honda was being driven by Marta Katarzyna Eddens, 37, who was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with minor injuries, police said. The front-seat passenger of the Honda Odyssey was identified as Anna Aleksandra McCoy. She was also taken to CMC with minor injuries, officials said.
