A deadly accident took place early this morning on Hwy 50 near Whitewater.   The driver of a 1993 Lexus attempted to over correct  the vehicle which went off the shoulder of the road and wound up crossing the median and into oncoming traffic  where it collided with a 2011 Subaru Outback.  The 23 yr old woman driving  the 1993 Lexus was not wearing her seatbelt and died at the scene.  The 45 yr old woman in the Subaru who is from Montrose was transported to St. Mary’s with what is believed to be non-life threatening  injuries.  The crash remains under investigation but authorities feel drug use and excessive speed are being considered as main factors in the crash.
