View Comments

LAKE FOREST (CBS) — An 18-year-old woman was killed when the pickup truck she was traveling in rolled over on a tollway in Lake Forest.

The California Highway Patrol was notified of the accident about 1:12 a.m. Sunday. According to authorities, the woman was a passenger in a 2000 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck that crashed on the southbound toll road just south of Portola Parkway.

The Orange County Coroner’s officer confirmed that the woman died at the scene. Authorities said that the driver of the vehicle, identified as 18-year-old male from Trabuco Canyon, had left Los Angeles an hour ago and may have been fatigued.

He was rushed to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, but his condition was not immediately known.

The CHP said neither alcohol nor drugs appeared to be a factor in the collision.
