A 23-year-old Pacoima woman was killed over the weekend after driving her car off Interstate 5.

Rosa A. Lopez was driving to work at approximately 5:42 a.m. when she lost control of her 2000 Honda Accord near the McBean Parkway offramp, according a statement from the California Highway Patrol.

Lopez’s car went through the northbound guardrail as it went off the freeway. The car hit the tops of several trees as it flew through the air before overturning and landing in the Butte Canyon Wash, adjacent to the Vista Valencia Golf Course, according to the statement.

Lopez, who was wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The northbound onramp to Interstate 5 from Lyons Avenue was closed as officials repaired the guardrail and investigated the cause of the crash.
