A 75-year-old Estero woman died Sunday, days after a crash in south Lee County.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the woman was a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a crash near Three Oaks and Estero parkways on Dec. 15.

The report states a second vehicle traveling south on Three Oaks failed to stop at a red light and drove into the path of the woman’s vehicle.

The vehicle the woman was a passenger in was driven by an 80-year-old Estero man who was taken to Gulf Coast Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the vehicle that troopers say didn’t stop at the red light is a 65-year-old woman from Bonita Springs.

The crash remains under investigation.

The Florida Highway Patrol no longer releases the names of those involved in crashes, citing Marsy’s Law.
