An elderly Visalia woman died Wednesday following a collision on State Highway 198 in which her husband was critically injured and a Tulare man less seriously hurt.
The accident involved a car driven by Philip Hill, 20, 764 No. F St., Tulare, and one driven by H. H. Bates, 92, Visalia, at 1:24p.m. Wednesday on Hwy 198 and Chinowth Road in Visalia.

The Highway Patrol investigation of the accident is still underway. The report said Bates was driving south bound on Chinowth Road and Hill driving west on 198. Mrs. Bates' death has not yet been officially registered as a traffic fatality.
