LONGMONT - Police say a 63-year-old Longmont woman was killed Wednesday afternoon when her car drifted into oncoming traffic, hitting another car head-on.
Longmont Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur said the two-car collision happened about 3:30 p.m. on Ninth Avenue near Vivian Street.
Kathleen Forsyth was driving a gray 2009 Chevrolet Aveo west on Ninth when her car drifted into the eastbound lanes, Satur said. The Chevrolet slammed head-on into a 2004 Mercury Sable driven by Shalby Foth, 75, of Longmont.
Forsyth was killed in the crash.
Foth, whose birthday was Wednesday, was conscious and talking to first-responders at the scene, Saturday said. She was transported in serious condition to Longmont United Hospital.
The crash remains under investigation.
