REDSTONE, Colo. A 21-year-old Illinois woman died in a two-vehicle, head-on crash on Highway 133 north of Redstone Saturday night. The names of all involved are being held pending notification of their families.

The details of the crash are still under investigation, but evidence suggests a Honda hatchback was traveling northbound on Highway 133 and crossed into the southbound lane. The Honda then struck a Chevy Cavalier head-on in the southbound lane.

The driver of the Chevy was pronounced dead at the scene. A male passenger from the Chevy was transported to Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs with serious injuries - as was the driver of the Honda, a 46-year-old Basalt woman.

Neither alcohol nor drugs are being considered as contributing factors in the crash at this time. The road was dry and the weather was clear at the time of the crash.
