A silver 2008 Mercedes C30 was heading eastbound on SR-138 and was struck head on by the Nissan. It is not clear if the Nissan struck the semi-truck and trailer,” CHP officials said in the news release.

When CHP officers arrived they located the mangled vehicles and a 20-year-old South Gate woman, later identified as Magda Pena Capristo dead on arrival. The second person, a female juvenile who was in the Nissan, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital. The woman driving the Mercedes was not injured.

The road was temporarily closed causing major congestion for those traveling SR-138. The identification of the deceased person will be released pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.
