In a statement, SA Police said the Toyota sedan was travelling west along the Princes Highway when it crashed.
The 51-year-old South East woman, who was a rear passenger in the car, died at the scene.
The car’s driver, a 53-year-old woman, and front passenger, a 21-year-old woman, were taken to the Kingston Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
