    A 26-year-old woman was killed after a two-vehicle accident near Fiesta Island Wednesday afternoon.

    The accident occurred around noon Wednesday on Mission Bay Drive, according to the San Diego Police Department.

    A driver leaving the Hilton near Fiesta Island collided with an 87-year-old woman driving a white car on East Mission Bay Drive, said Sgt. Joe Benavides.

    The woman driving the white vehicle had a heart attack in the crash, authorities told NBC 7.

    The female driver and three other people were transported to local hospitals.

    Just before 2 p.m. the woman driving the white car died following her heart attack, said Benavides. She sustained a serious upper leg injury and laceration to her face. She did not have a pulse when medics arrived.

    East Mission Bay Drive was closed for several hours and Fiesta Island Road was shut down. Police were diverting traffic in the area.
