A 20-year-old woman was found Monday in a crashed vehicle on the southbound Antelope Valley (14) Freeway, south of Palmdale, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Caltrans cleanup crew found Veronica Garcia and the wreckage shortly before 10 a.m. near Vista Point, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Palmdale resident was traveling southbound on the freeway when, for unknown reasons, the 2017 Infinity Q50 veered off the roadway, overturned and landed on its roof down an embankment, ejecting her from the car, the CHP reported. Authorities are investigating if drugs or alcohol were a factor.

Authorities are seeking witnesses to the crash and urged anyone with information to call Officer C. Borne at 661-948-8541.
