ANTELOPE VALLEY – Alcohol may have been a factor in the head-on collision that killed two drivers Thursday night, authorities said.
The fatal collision occurred around 9:49 p.m. on 170th Street East, south of Avenue S-8, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
Emily Taylor, 49, of Huntington Beach, was driving a 2012 white Toyota Prius southbound on 170th Street East when she allowed her car to drift into the northbound lanes, the CHP report states.
Taylor’s vehicle collided head-on with a 2007 white Honda that was traveling northbound on 170th Street East. The Honda was being driven by 22-year-old Alejandro Alvizures of Hesperia.
Both vehicles careened off the roadway and the Honda rolled over before coming to rest, according to the CHP report.
Both Taylor and Alvizures died at the scene. Taylor was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, and alcohol may have been a factor in this collision, the CHP report states.
The fatal collision remains under investigation.
