1 person killed, 2 critically injured in Palmdale crash

A motorist was killed and two others were seriously injured this evening when two vehicles collided near Palmdale, authorities said.

The accident was described as a T-bone collision that occurred about 7:30 p.m. at 116th Street and Pearblossom Highway, said California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball.

The driver of one vehicle was fatally injured. Two others were taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, Kimball said.

Authorities responding to the scene discovered two dogs dead in the backseat of one of the vehicles, he said.

All lanes of both roads -- except for the westbound Pearblossom Highway lanes -- were shut down for more than an hour as a result of the crash.
