ENCINITAS (CNS) - The driver who was killed in a crash into a big rig on Interstate 5 in Cardiff-by-the-Sea over the weekend was publicly identified Tuesday as a 22-year-old Vista woman.

Mireya Colores and her two passengers were headed north on the freeway north of Manchester Avenue around 2:15 a.m. Sunday when she lost control while changing lanes, according to the county Medical Examiner's Office and the California Highway Patrol.

The vehicle crashed into the back of a tractor trailer that was pulled over on the right shoulder, authorities said.

Responding paramedics attempted to revive Colores, but she died at the scene from blunt force trauma to her neck and torso, officials with the Medical Examiner's Office said.

Her two passengers were taken to a hospital in an unknown condition, authorities said.
