An 18-year-old woman died Saturday in a head-on collision in Lake Elsinore.

The crash was reported just before 10 a.m. on the eastbound side of Railroad Canyon Road near Church Street, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

“The preliminary investigation indicates the deceased was driving westbound on Railroad Canyon Drive and crossed over the median and was struck by a vehicle traveling eastbound,” said Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Brad Foster. “The cause of this collision is still under investigation, and alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the collision.”

The deceased driver was identified as Ana Arreola of Quail Valley, near Menifee, according to the Riverside County coroner’s office. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken by paramedics to a hospital with moderate injuries, Foster said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Lake Elsinore Sheriffs Station at 951-245-3300.
