Elisha Gilliam Sablan, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene by Upshur County Justice of the Peace Lyle Potter, said Moore.
The injured woman, identified by Moore as Ann Laura Yazak, was airlifted to Trinity Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler, where she was listed in good condition Tuesday night.
The autos collided virtually head-on around 5:45 p.m. about 11 miles northeast of Gilmer, said Moore. The crash occurred near the intersection with Jimerson Road.
Ms. Sablan was northbound in a 2002 Dodge Neon, while Ms. Yazak was southbound in a 1996 Buick Regal, Moore said. Both were wearing safety belts and Ms. Sablan apparently died instantly although an airbag deployed in her car, he said.
The Buick had no airbag, Moore said.
Gilmer and Ore City firefighters used extrication tools to remove the victim's body from her auto, Moore said. Both vehicles were demolished, and traffic was stacked up for at least two tenths of a mile south of the scene.
Circumstances of the accident remained undetermined and under investigation, said Moore, but he told a representative of The Mirror at the scene there were no indications drugs or alcohol were involved. He said he had not yet talked to the survivor.
Ms. Sablan was en route home when she was killed, Moore said.
