“For an unknown reason, the driver of the Kia lost control of the vehicle, which caused it to cross the central center lane into the eastern lanes, hitting the front of the Nissan,” the sheriff said in a statement.

The driver of Kija, later identified as Giselle, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the spot at 3:03 p.m., the coroner’s office said.

A passenger in the front seat, her 16-year-old brother, suffered serious injuries and was flown to a trauma center. The driver of the Nissan suffered moderate injuries and was transported to a local hospital.
