KERMAN, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A 27-year-old man was arrested for allegedly driving under the suspicion of drug impairment after crashing head-on with a vehicle and killing a 20-year-old woman Saturday night, according to California Highway Patrol officers. 

CHP officers say around 9:15 p.m., they responded to a crash on Highway 180 east of Shasta Avenue. 

According to investigators, Antonia Orosco of Fresno was driving a Honda sedan westbound on Highway 180 east of Shasta Avenue. 

A 20-year-old woman from Mendota was driving an Acura, traveling eastbound on Highway 180 east of Shasta Avenue.

The vehicles collided head-on within the eastbound lane resulting in major damage to both vehicles. 

The driver of the Acura sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene, according to CHP officers.
