Update: A 48-year-old Bakersfield woman was killed Saturday about 3:40 p.m. in a traffic collision north of Delano, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Joe Vega said.
Maria Torres was a passenger in a 2000 Chevrolet Astro van when it was broadsided by a Kia Sorento in the intersection of Road 156 and Avenue 8, Vega said. A 53-year-old Bakersfield man driving the van stopped at the stop sign before, for unknown reasons, he entered the intersection into the path of a 2011 Kia Sorento driven by a 38-year-old Pixley man.
Vega said the van was hit on the left side and Torres died from her injuries.
