A woman who died af­ter her car drifted into on­com­ing traf­fic on Los Osos Val­ley Road east of Foothill Boule­vard Thurs­day morn­ing was iden­ti­fied by the CHP as Yu Liu Hunt of San Luis Obispo.

Hunt, 52, was driv­ing west in a 2003 Honda at about 7:20 a.m. Thurs­day when her car drifted into the op­po­site lane and was in­volved in a head-on col­li­sion with a 2008 Dodge sedan driven east by Jef­frey Lewis Raidor, 42, of San Luis Obispo, the CHP said.

The driver ahead of Raidor saw Hunt’s Honda and swerved out of the way, but Raidor wasn’t able to see the car un­til it was right in front of him, the CHP said.

Raidor, whose car was trav­el­ing at around 50 mph, was able to ap­ply his brakes as the cars col­lided, the CHP said. He was se­ri­ously in­jured in the crash.

Af­ter the col­li­sion, a CHP of­fi­cer saw that Hunt was un­re­spon­sive. With the help of a pass­ing driver who had stopped, the of­fi­cer pulled her from the ve­hi­cle and per­formed CPR un­til med­i­cal per­son­nel ar­rived on scene, the CHP said.

Hunt and Raidor were taken to Sierra Vista Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter in San Luis Obispo, where Hunt died from her in­juries, the CHP said.
