CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A woman was fatally injured when her SUV collided with a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle at a Chula Vista intersection, police said Wednesday.

The collision between the woman's Toyota RAV4 and the marked Border Patrol vehicle occurred at the intersection of Olympic Parkway and Brandywine Avenue about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Witnesses told police that the Toyota's driver ran a red light, although the cause of the crash remained under investigation, Chula Vista police Lt. Don Redmond said.

The injured woman was extricated from the wreckage and taken to a hospital, where she died, police said. The Border Patrol agent was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, Redmond said.

Westbound traffic on Olympic Parkway was temporarily diverted onto northbound Brandywine Avenue and eastbound traffic on Olympic Parkway was detoured onto Oleander Avenue, but the roadways were reported cleared by about 4:20 a.m., police said.
