A deadly crash slowed down southbound Highway 99 near Highway 12 in Lodi early Thursday morning.

The right lane of Highway 99 is closed and drivers are advised to use I-5 as an alternate route.

The two cars, a Honda Accord and a Dodge Avenger crashed into each other around 6 a.m., leaving the woman in the Honda dead. The man in the Dodge is uninjured.

After the Honda was hit, it went down an embankment and hit a tree. CHP says the impact from crashing into the tree was far greater for the woman than the car crash itself.

They said the woman was wearing a seatbelt and it doesn’t appear drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.
