CORONADO, Calif. (CNS) - A 25-year-old woman was killed early Friday in a possible DUI-related car crash near the Hotel Del Coronado, authorities reported.

The woman, whose name was withheld pending family notification, died at the scene.

Paramedics took the 20-year-old man who had been driving the car and a woman, also 20, who had been riding in the front passenger seat, to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Their identities also were not released.
