SAN DIEGO - Authorities Friday released the name of a 29-year-old San Diego woman who died after she veered into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on into another motorist on an Otay Mesa thoroughfare.

Erendira Boites was fatally injured in the 2600 block of Coronado Avenue, just east of Interstate 5, around 8:40 a.m. Thursday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office. She died at the scene.
