Police are investigating a head-on, wrong-way collision on Interstate 40 Monday that left a woman dead.
The driver of a 2007 BMW, Ronald M. Debnam of Raleigh, drove onto I-40 West from the west exit ramp at Rock Quarry Road at about noon and began traveling the wrong way, according to an accident report released Monday night.
The BMW struck a 2005 Suzuki head on, the report said. The driver of the Suzuki, Ana E. Castellanos of Fuquay-Varina, died from her injuries, the report said.

It said the BMW was traveling at 25 mph and the Suzuki at 60 mph when they collided.
No charges had been filed as of Monday night.
