One person died Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle collision on Promenade Parkway at Lent Ranch Parkway in Elk Grove.

The crash occurred shortly after 4 p.m. Officer Christopher Trim, Elk Grove police spokesman, said a landscaping truck pulling a trailer was northbound on Promenade Parkway when a southbound Toyota Prius began to turn left onto Lent Ranch Parkway, in front of the truck, and the vehicles collided.

The driver and sole occupant of the Prius, a woman, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name has not been released pending notification of family.

Trim said the driver was the only occupant of the landscaping truck and was not injured.

He said the intersection had working traffic signals, and the circumstances of the collision are under investigation.

As of 5 p.m. Promenade Parkway was closed to traffic from just north of Lent Ranch Parkway to Kammerer Road. Motorists are asked to avoid the area.
