A California woman is dead after a head-on collision in Tooele County Sunday morning.

Utah Highway Patrol says two cars collided head-on at the intersection of State Road 138 and Erda Way in Tooele County just before 6 a.m. Officials say a Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling eastbound in the westbound lane where a Toyota Camry was traveling. Both swerved south to avoid each other and the vehicles collided.

26-year-old Rocio Macias of Azusa, Calif., who was a passenger in the Camry, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Camry and one passenger from each vehicle were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash is still under investigation.
