An update identifies the women as 23-year-old Mary Lynn Lacerte of Pinon Hills, 22-year-old Eden Sage Nunez of Jonson Valley, and 28-year-old Ashley Morgan Taylor of Palmdale.
San Bernardino County firefighters responded to the scene after receiving collision reports after 4:03 p.m. on April 16, occurring on Palmdale Road, just west of Sheep Creek Road.
Both vehicles drove east of Minero Road on State Route 18 when the incident took place.
Upon CHP’s arrival, they located a black BMW and green 1993 Honda Accord on the scene. According to their news release, Lacarte and Nunez drove in the Honda, and Morgan drove the 2002 BMW.
Further so, witnesses say one of the vehicles involved was traveling the wrong way. There, the other vehicle approached directly to it, causing the extreme head-on crash.

As a result of the accident, one of the vehicles erupted into flames. Reportedly, a Good Samaritan driving a water tanker stopped and helped extinguish the fire, along with the others.
