A Kersbrook man has been charged after his car crashed head-on into another on Tuesday night, March 10, killing a Hindmarsh Island woman.

Emergency services were called to the scene on South Para Road just after 7.15pm, where a Ford ute and a Peugot station wagon had collided.

The 47-year-old Hindmarsh Island woman driving the ute was airlifted to the Royal Adelaide Hospital, but succumbed to her injuries not long after arrival.

The 44-year-old Kersbrook man driving the station wagon sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Lyall McEwin Hospital.

Police closed the road between Watts Gully Road and Deloraine Road for just over two hours while Major Crash Investigators examined the scene and the area was cleared.

On Wednesday, March 11, police arrested the Kersbrook man and charged him with causing death by dangerous driving.

He was bailed and will face Adelaide Magistrates Court on April 29.

Anyone who saw the collision or either vehicle before the crash is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au

She is the 21st person to die on the state's roads this year, compared to 22 at the same time last year.
