RAMONA, Calif. — Two people, including a 13-year-old boy, were killed Thursday evening during a crash in Ramona, authorities said.

According to California Highway Patrol, a 21-year-old woman was driving a 2007 Toyota Scion TC westbound on San Vicente Road, east of Wildcat Canyon Road, around 4:45 p.m. Her rate of speed is unknown.

All of the parties involved were confirmed to be residents of Ramona.

At the time of the crash, CHP said the roadway was wet from rain. It’s unknown at this point in their investigation why the Toyota crossed into the opposing lane.
