She ended up crossing over into the northbound lane, which is when the CHP says she tried to correct the Lexus and lost control.
The car crashed into a tree, killing both women inside, according to officials.
The CHP identified the driver of the car as a 39-year-old Oroville woman and the passenger as a 22-year-old Forbestown woman. Their names have not been released.
