IRVINE – Authorities have identified a 77-year-old woman killed after police say a car was broadsided by a van in an Irvine intersection on Tuesday afternoon.

Patricia Thompson-Yates of Irvine was the driver of one of two vehicles that collided in the Culver Drive and Farwell Avenue intersection about 1:20 p.m., authorities said.

Thompson-Yates was driving a Toyota passenger vehicle eastbound on Farwell, while the van was going southbound on Culver, Irvine police Cmdr. Mike Hamel said. It wasn’t immediately clear which vehicle had the right of way.

Thompson-Yates was taken to Hoag Hospital, where she was pronounced dead just after 2 p.m., Orange County Coroner’s Office officials said.

The two drivers were the only occupants of the vehicles, Hamel said. No other injuries or arrests were reported.

Culver from Trabuco Road to Bryan Avenue was closed until 8 p.m. as authorities investigated the crash.
