Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A two-car collision near Lawrence Welk Resort killed one person Tuesday afternoon and sent two others -- including a 98-year-old woman -- to a hospital.

The accident occurred about 2:30 p.m., when a 60-year-old Escondido resident lost control of her southbound 2002 Honda on Champagne Boulevard in the Hidden Meadows area for unknown reasons, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The vehicle veered to the right and hit a curb, then skidded to the left into a northbound lane, where it was struck broadside by a 2013 Cadillac SRX driven by a 70-year-old San Diego woman, the CHP reported.

The driver of the Honda died at the scene. Her name was withheld pending family notification.

Medics took the other motorist and her nonagenarian passenger to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido for treatment of minor to moderately serious injuries.
