ROSAMOND – An 84-year-old Rosamond woman died at the hospital Monday morning following a single-vehicle rollover crash in the Rosamond area, authorities said.
Isabel B. Caadlawon was a passenger in a 2002 Dodge Ram pickup truck that crashed around 8:45 a.m. Monday, Aug. 17, on SR-14 south of Avenue A, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The pickup truck was being driven southbound on SR-14 by 46-year-old Elizabeth Macauley of Rosamond, according to the CHP report.
“Macauely, for an unknown reason, made an unsafe turning movement and lost control of her vehicle. The Dodge pickup truck subsequently overturned numerous times, coming to rest on its roof in the dirt center median of SR-14,” the CHP report states.
Both Macauley and Caadlawon were transported to Antelope Valley Hospital with major injuries, and Caadlawon succumbed to her injuries at the hospital, the CHP report states.
As CHP officers were investigating, a separate traffic collision occurred in the northbound lanes of SR-14, just north of the first traffic collision.
At approximately 9 a.m., a 2013 Ford Fusion rear-ended a 2004 Ford F-250 pickup truck, according to the CHP report. The driver of the Ford Fusion sustained lacerations to his left hand.
The southbound lanes of SR-14 were completely closed at Avenue A for approximately one hour. The No. 2 lane was reopened around 10 a.m., and the remaining southbound lanes were reopened at approximately 11:30 a.m., according to the CHP report. During the full closure of the southbound lanes, traffic was being diverted onto Avenue A.
