SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities Friday released the name of a 29-year-old San Diego woman who died after she veered into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on into another motorist on an Otay Mesa thoroughfare.

Erendira Boites was fatally injured in the 2600 block of Coronado Avenue, just east of Interstate 5, around 8:40 a.m. Thursday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office. She died at the scene.

It was not immediately clear what caused Boites to veer into oncoming traffic but neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor, the Medical Examiner's Office reported.

The other driver, a 31-year-old woman, was taken by ambulance to UCSD Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
