Woman, 46, Killed in Lancaster Crash
A 46-year-old woman was killed Wednesday when her car was broadsided in a Lancaster intersection, authorities said.
The woman, whose name was not released pending notification of relatives, was driving east on Avenue K about 9:10 a.m. when her car was hit by a car heading south on 30th Street West, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
She died at the scene.
The driver of the other car, Harriett Hammond, 70, of Fallbrook, was injured in the crash.
She was in fair condition at Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center in Lancaster.
A sheriff’s statement said the impact of the crash knocked the dead woman’s car into a northbound car driven by Raymond Cummings, 49, of Lancaster, which was stopped at the edge of the intersection.
Cummings was not injured.
It was unclear who was at fault in the accident, the Sheriff’s Department said.
