At about 6:40 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, 2014, a woman was killed and several people were injured in a van crash in Lancaster, reported the Los Angeles Times.

Three people were thrown from the van, including a woman in her early 30s. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency responders transported several occupants of the van and the male driver of the Hyundai to a hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. Authorities are investigating the accident.
