A woman in her mid-70s was killed and another seriously injured in a head-on collision in Lancaster, authorities said Thursday.

The collision was reported at 8:46 p.m. Wednesday at 20820 E. Avenue J, Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Miguel Ornelas said.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz said. Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to free the other crash victim from a vehicle before the person was airlifted to a trauma center, Ornelas said.
