A 27-year-old was killed in a head-on crash that occurred on Route 46 Tuesday afternoon.

State Police at Oneida said Tyler R. Bangs, of North Bay, was pronounced dead after being transported to Rome Memorial Hospital.

At about 3:34 p.m., Bangs was driving a 2016 Chevrolet Trax southbound when the vehicle crossed over into the northbound lane and struck a 2012 Fusion, operated by Roxanne L. Platt, 63, of Utica, head-on, troopers said.

Both drivers were extricated from their vehicles by members of Rome Fire Department. Platt was airlifted to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, where she is listed in critical condition with internal injuries, troopers said.
