A 28-year-old woman died Friday in a crash on Highway 3B, about one kilometer west of its junction with Highway 22 in Trail.

The driver was taken to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital where she died.
The 40-year-old woman driving the sedan suffered minor injuries. She was treated in hospital and released.
