PHOENIX (AP) - Police in Phoenix say woman has died after being involved in a crash with another vehicle.

They identify the victim of Saturday night's accident as 49-year-old Regina Marie Ritter.

Police say that a car Ritter was attempting to pull out from a private drive failed to yield to the traffic and was struck by another vehicle on the driver's side.

Ritter sustained numerous injuries from the collision and was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police say Ritter's 56-year-old male passenger wasn't injured.

They say the 37-year-old man driving the other vehicle involved was uninjured and remained on scene.

Police say the man wasn't impaired and speed doesn't appear to be a factor, but an investigation of the fatal crash is ongoing.
