A 31-year-old Lake Forest woman died Monday afternoon after her car careened and hit a tree in Trabuco Canyon, authorities said.
It was about 12:50 p.m. when a silver Honda Civic was traveling northbound on Live Oak Canyon Road, just south of Shelter Canyon Road, according to the California Highway Patrol crash report.
“For reasons still under investigation, the Honda veered left and crashed into an oak tree,” the report states.
The driver was taken to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo where she was pronounced dead just before 2 p.m., according to coroner officials.
No other cars or people were involved in the crash. CHP investigators were determining if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the Capistrano-area CHP office at 949-487-4000 or the 24-hour dispatch line at 949-784-6700.
