Judylynn Jean Zamber, 32, was southbound on Capital Boulevard near the Wakefield development at about 12:30 Sunday when her 1994 Infiniti collided head-on with a 2008 Toyota driven by Jennifer Faye Burnette, police said.
Burnette, 38, of Norfolk, Va., turned left from Common Oaks Drive onto Capital Boulevard and was driving north in the southbound lanes when the wreck occurred, police said.
Zamber died Wednesday, and Burnette was listed in good condition Thursday at WakeMed.
Burnette was initially charged with driving while impaired and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. Police said they would meet with prosecutors to determine whether to upgrade the charges because of Zamber's death.
