DESERT CENTER, California (April 21, 2013) — Chelsea Vu, 21, of Westminster was killed Sunday morning in a head on car crash at the Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, according to a press release issued by the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner Department.

Just before 11 a.m., police say that the young woman was riding as a passenger in a coupe that was driving on the race tract at 25300 Rice Road. The driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle, and struck a concrete barrier head on in a recreation race on the track. Vu died at the scene of the crash and the driver suffered major injuries and was transported by air ambulance to a nearby medical facility, according to a press release issued by the Riverside County Fire Department.

The fatal crash is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol‘s Indio Station, the report said. Vu was wearing a four-point harness-style seatbelt at the time of the crash.

“This is a tragedy for the family and friends of this young woman,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “My prayers are with them as they cope with such a terrible loss.”
