Lebanon woman killed in traffic accident Wednesday


A Lebanon woman died in a wreck Wednesday afternoon on Elm Street.

According to a Lebanon Police Department report, Kristen Odorizzi, 26, of Lebanon, was declared deceased following a wreck near the intersection of Springfield Road and Elm Street that occurred at about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday.

A 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Crystal Wilson, 34, of Lebanon, “drifted into oncoming traffic” while traveling north on Elm Street. The Cavalier collided with a 2004 GMC Yukon driven by Tiffany Vlasis, 39, of Stoutland, according to the report. 

Wilson received what was described as “probable” injuries. Odorizzi, who was a passenger in Wilson's vehicle, was declared deceased at the scene due to injuries sustained in the accident. Neither women were wearing seat belts, according to the LPD.

The driver of the Yukon told the police that she was traveling south on Elm Street when the Cavalier came into her lane. She said that she tried to stop but was unable and struck the other vehicle, the report says.

Funeral services for Odorizzi are planned for 2 p.m. Monday, April 12, 2021, at Holman-Howe Funeral Home in Lebanon with Rev. Allen Reeves officiating. Burial will be in Mount Rose Memorial Park in Lebanon. Visitation will be 1-2 p.m. Monday in the Holman-Howe Funeral Home in Lebanon.
