A woman driving an SUV with two children as passengers eastbound on Woodbury Road just east of El Molino Ave. about noon Tuesday died after her car overturned and apparently was then struck by an oncoming minivan.

The two children, both under 10 years of age, survived. They were transported to a local hospital for “precautionary reasons,” authorities said.

As of Wednesday morning, the woman’s identity had not yet been made public.

A California Highway Patrol spokesperson said investigators are attempting to determine why the SUV overturned. Initial reports indicate the driver may have clipped a parked vehicle.

CHP Sergeant Bender said that the driver of the minivan was uninjured.

The north side of Woodbury Road in this area is Altadena, the south side is Pasadena. The incident was responded to by Altadena Station deputies, Los Angeles County Fire crews and the California Highway Patrol.
