Police say the driver of a red SUV pulled out in front of an oncoming car Saturday afternoon, resulting a fatal collision.
The woman driving the SUV was killed, while the driver in the other car was transported to the hospital with a leg injury. There was only one person in each vehicle.
The crash happened just after 2 p.m. at the intersection of Lake and Highway 115 on the southwest side of the Springs.
Investigators say the woman was exiting onto Lake from southbound Highway 115. She did reportedly stop at the stop sign, but then pulled out in front of a black car, which headed westbound on Lake. The collision forced her vehicle to roll into the median, while the other vehicle crashed into a light pole.
Investigators aren't saying if drugs, alcohol or speed played a factor in the crash, but did comment that drivers in the area tend to go much faster than the posted speed limit.
"It's a busy roadway, posted at 45 mph...as you know, that doesn't mean that's what people are doing," Lt. Brian Ritz said.
The woman's identity has not been released.
