One woman was killed af­ter she crashed her ve­hi­cle into the cen­ter guardrail along the south­bound In­ter­state 5 free­way, just north of Vista Del Lago, on Thurs­day.

The ac­ci­dent oc­curred at 12:06 p.m. Wed­nes­day when the vic­tim’s dark blue van hit the cen­ter di­vider.

A wit­ness at the scene said it ap­peared the vic­tim suf­fered a seizure be­fore the crash, said Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol Of­fi­cer Eric Priess­man.

“It looks like she passed away at the scene,” he said.

Sev­eral lanes were shut down for some time fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent. They opened back up sev­eral hours later.
