She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash by paramedics.
A passenger in the Saturn was transported by Mercy Air to Antelope Valley Medical Center for treatment of major injuries. The driver of the Toyota was uninjured.
CHP officers are investigating the crash and will issue a report with their findings.
“This is a tragedy for this young woman’s family as they cope with her sudden loss and try to piece together what happened,” said Attorney James Johnson.
