Authorities Tuesday identified a motorist who was killed in a head-on collision in the northern Antelope Valley community of Llano.

Adalberto Trujillo, 31, of Palmdale, died at the scene of the crash that occurred about 3:30 p.m. Monday on 170th Street East south of Avenue S, according to the California Highway Patrol.

According to the CHP, Trujillo was driving a 2010 Honda Civic north on 170th Street East when the car hit a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck that was southbound on 170th Street East.

“Due to undetermined reasons … Trujillo allowed the 2010 Honda Civic, to veer the left into the opposing lane, directly into the path of (the) 2001 Chevy Silverado,” according to a CHP statement, which says that alcohol and drugs are “not suspected to be a factor in this collision.”

The driver of the Silverado was taken to a hospital for treatment of moderate injuries, the CHP reported.
