Woman Killed in Cathedral City Tow Truck Crash

A woman was killed Sunday after she crashed into the back of a flatbed tow truck in Cathedral City. The crash happened around 5 p.m. at Date Palm Drive and Gerald Ford Drive. Authorities have identified the victim as 22-year-old Itzel Contreras Ontiveros of Cathedral City.

It is unclear whether Ontiveros was the driver or a passenger at the time of the crash. It appears that others were injured in the crash, but details on the others involved have not been released.

Police closed northbound lanes of Date Palm Drive for a few hours to investigate the crash, and all lanes were reopened by Monday morning. The cause of the fatal accident remains under investigation.

This is the second fatal crash that occurred in Cathedral City over the weekend. On Saturday, one person was killed in a DUI-related crash on Date Palm Drive north of I-10.
