ANTELOPE VALLEY – A 22-year-old California City woman was killed Wednesday morning (Jan. 30) when her Chevy Cobalt collided with a hay squeeze in an Antelope Valley intersection, authorities said.
The fatal collision happened around 10:50 a.m. in the intersection of 120th Street East and Avenue H, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The woman was driving southbound on 120th Street East, when she stopped for a posted stop sign and then proceeded into the intersection — directly into the path of the hay truck, the CHP report states.
The farm vehicle, a 1992 Roadrunner Hay Squeeze, was being driven by 57-year-old Russell Lee Frisbie of Lancaster.
Frisbie was driving the farm vehicle westbound on Avenue H at about 55 miles per hour, the CHP report states.
The woman failed to clear the intersection from oncoming traffic, and as a result, both vehicles collided when they both entered the intersection, the CHP report states.
The 22-year-old woman died at the scene, but Frisbie did not sustain any injuries as a result of the crash, the CHP report states.
The traffic collision is still under investigation.
UPDATED 1/31/2013: The deceased has been identified as 22-year-old Jennifer Norton of California City, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
