A Palmdale woman was killed early this morning after the vehicle she was driving ran off Highway 14 near Agua Dulce Canyon Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at approximately 1:45 a.m. Saturday, according to a CHP incident report.

The Palmdale woman was driving a 2009 Dodge Challenger northbound on Highway 14 south of Agua Dulce Canyon Road at around 65 mph, according to the CHP.

Her vehicle drifted to the left into the HOV lane and struck the concrete center median wall, according to the CHP.

The vehicle then veered sharply to the right across all lanes and the right shoulder, traveling up a hillside.

The vehicle drove off the hillside and “vaulted over the wide dirt shoulder,” according to the CHP incident report. The vehicle landed on its roof against another hillside at the north end of the shoulder.

The driver, whose name has not yet been released, was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was partially ejected from the vehicle, according to the CHP.

The driver suffered fatal injuries.

It always amazes me when I read about these types of accidents and the person wasn't wearing their seatbelt. I wasn't happy when the law when into effect many, many moons ago, but now..........geez I feel almost naked if I don't buckle up.

Sorry to read another sad story!

Yes, it amazes me how many people still dont use seatbelts. Been wearing a seatbelt, and helmet when I ride long before we needed laws for it. Really people! Good news is at least we are thinning the weak out of the herd....

ride2live This young woman was a daughter and sister to her family and loved by many in our community. I guess as self righteous as you are you never learned the Golden Rule. If you can't say anything nice, DON'T say anything at all. It is not needed and only hurts those who are mourning the loss of a loved one.

1:45 am...not wearing a seatbelt.

I hope she wasn't under the influence, if so then it would truly be a waste of another human life.

You are mistaken on what the golden rule is.

DMeyer you are correct had the wrong rule. But the actual Golden Rule, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, applys just the same. I would assume no one would want complete strangers making such statements about them or a family member if they were to have an accident. The sad truth is, a life was lost. Think before you type hurtful things. Is it something you would say to their face? If not, don't type. Would you want your mother, father, sister or brother to read such statements from people who did not know your precious family member? This is all I am going to say about this wonderful woman who will truely be missed by many people.

Sorry to hear you lost a friend, most of us have. How old was she? Did she have any kids? Married? Was she out late because of work or was she out on a social event?
