BIG BEAR LAKE, CA (March 13, 2019) – A woman was killed following a head-on crash Wednesday morning on Highway 18 Big Bear Lake.
 
The fatal crash happened around 9:43 a.m. in an area known as the Arctic Circle near mile marker 41.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, a white 2004 Honda Civic, driven by a 31-year-old Elk Grove man, was heading northbound on Highway 18 when it lost control and crossed the double yellow lines into oncoming traffic, colliding head-on with a southbound 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe, driven Scott Anderson, 80, of Big Bear.
 
The impact caused major damage to the passenger side of the Honda.
 
A female passenger in the Honda, a 22-year-old La Habra resident, was killed in the crash. Her name has not yet been released pending notification of her family members.
 
The Honda driver was transported by ground ambulance to Bear Valley Community Hospital then by air ambulance to a nearby trauma center with major injuries.
 
Anderson only sustained minor injuries and was not hospitalized.
 
The Tahoe was traveling at approximately 40 mph when the vehicles collided. The speed of the Honda is undetermined, CHP officials said.
 
Conditions on the highway were light traffic at the time of the accident. Officials at the scene along with bystanders confirmed that there was ice on the roadways. CalTrans had spread cinders on the highway to improve traction.
