Woman dies in head-on crash on Howe Avenue

A 71-year-old woman died in a head-on collision Wednesday night on Howe Avenue in the Arden Arcade area.

The crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. as the woman was driving a white 2012 Nissan Versa southbound on Howe, approaching the intersection with Northrop Avenue, when her vehicle veered to the left and into the opposing lanes, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. As she entered the intersection, her vehicle struck the front of a gray 2006 Acura TSX that was traveling northbound on Howe Avenue.

Fire Department personnel found the woman unresponsive and she was transported to Sutter Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The driver of the Acura, a 29-year-old man from Roseville, complained of pain but was not transported to a hospital.

CHP officials said neither alcohol nor drugs appears to have contributed to the collision, which is still under investigation.

The woman's name has not been released pending notification of family.
