PHELAN • A woman died in a car crash early Friday morning in Phelan when her vehicle veered across the yellow line into oncoming traffic.

The 22-year-old, who hasn’t yet been identified, was driving a 2010 Chevy Aveo westbound on Phelan Road around 1 a.m. Friday when she crossed the double yellow lines and collided head-on with a 2005 Toyota Scion, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Coroner’s report.

Pedro Antonio Martinez, 30, of Victorville was driving the Scion eastbound at approximately 55 mph when the Aveo collided with his vehicle, according to CHP spokesperson Joaquin Zubieta.
