West Hills, CA (March 14, 2022) – A 76-year-old woman was killed after being involved in a DUI accident in the early morning hours of Saturday, March 12. At approximately 6:15 a.m., the fatal two-car accident occurred on Woolsey Canyon Road. 

Preliminary reports reveal that another woman, age  57, drove her Porsche into traffic. She was found to be intoxicated at the time of the collision. She collided head-on with the victim’s vehicle. 

The victim was rushed to an area hospital where she lost her life. Information from reports shows that the woman who caused the wreck drove her car to the left of the double line while she was intoxicated.
