A woman is dead after a crash in the Kensington, Maryland, area on Tuesday afternoon.

Montgomery County police said a 72-year-old Kensington resident died from her injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of northbound Connecticut Avenue and Franklin Street just before 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The 4Runner overturned in the crash. The woman was extracted from the wreckage and transported with serious injuries to a hospital, where she later passed away.

Her name had not been made public as of Thursday morning.

The two drivers involved in the crash were also taken to a hospital with injuries.
