A 19-year-old Caldwell woman died when the car she was driving crashed into a power pole early Saturday morning, according to Meridian police.
The crash happened at about 2:24 a.m. near the 2900 block of West Franklin Road.
Britanya Vasquez was declared dead at the scene of the crash. She was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.
A 19-year-old male passenger was transported to the hospital; his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. An 18-year-old female passenger was not injured, and she was released at the scene.
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash, Meridian Police Deputy Chief Tracy Basterrechea said Tuesday morning. More investigation is needed to determine if speed was a factor, he said.
The group were riding in 2007 Toyota Scion. The Caldwell teens were driving through Meridian on their way home from Boise.
