SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A two-vehicle collision at a Chollas View-area intersection left one of the drivers dead, San Diego police said.

The collision between two Toyota Camrys occurred at around 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of 47th Street and Hilltop Drive, in front of the Gompers Preparatory Academy school.

A 36-year-old woman was driving a red Camry northbound on 47th Street with a green light, while a 62-year-old female in a white Camry was heading westbound on Hilltop Drive when she failed to stop for the red light and T-boned the white Camry, police said.

The driver of the white Camry was transported to a hospital where she died from her injuries. The other driver was treated for non life-threatening injuries, police said.
