Man dies, woman critical in Lake Wales crash

Lake Wales, FL -- A two-vehicle crash in the Waverly Area leaves a Haines City man dead and a Lake Wales woman in critical condition last night.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, around 6:45 p.m. Kenneth Ainsworth, 66, of 48 Buck Moore Circle, was driving west in a gold 2004 Chevrolet Impala on Waverly Road when, for unknown reasons, he crossed the double yellow line near the intersection at Lake Lee Drive into the eastbound lane. Ainsworth's car struck a red 2006 Toyota Matrix nearly head-on, driven by Dorothy Stump, 86, of 299 Edgewood Blvd.

Ainsworth was declared dead at the scene and Stump was airlifted to Lakeland Regional Medical Center and is critical condition.

The investigation is ongoing.
