SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA (March 31, 2018)– An elderly woman was killed and two other people sustained major injuries in a head-on collision on Ortega Highway on Saturday.
 
The collision occurred at around 8:22 PM on the 74 Highway, just east of Antonio Parkway and west of Cristianitos Road. A 2005 Mazda that was headed westbound drove into the eastbound lanes for unknown reasons.
 
It then struck a 2016 Honda driving eastbound.
 
The fatality in the crash was identified as 77-year-old Amparo Lopez of Murrieta. Lopez was a passenger in the Honda who later died from her injuries in the hospital. The 74-year old Murrieta man driving the Honda and the 38-year-old Lake Forest man driving the Mazda both sustained major injuries. All three victims were rushed to Mission Hospital.
 
CHP is investigating the crash and alcohol is suspected to be involved in the collision. It was also reported that the driver of the Mazda was under arrest following medical treatment.
