Two Women Dead after Vehicle Crashes into Parked Truck near East Palmdale Boulevard
PALMDALE, CA (September 29, 2018) – Two women were killed early Saturday morning following a collision with a truck near East Palmdale Boulevard. The victims were later identified as 61-year-old Rosario Agmata of Lancaster and 68-year-old Erlinda Fernandez of the Philippines.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident took place shortly after 5:00 AM. A 2018 Toyota Highlander had been involved in a minor, rear-end crash with another vehicle.
The two parties were about to exchange information when, for unknown reasons, the Highlander sped off. The SUV then entered a construction zone, where it slammed into a parked truck equipped with an attenuator. It is unclear whether or not the Highlander crashed into the attenuator or the truck itself.
Two Highlander occupants, Agmata and Fernandez, both sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders. No other injuries were reported by the authorities.
Alcohol and drugs were ruled out as possible contributing factors in the fatal collision, which remains under investigation. No other information has been disclosed to the public at this time.
