The San Diego Sheriff's Department was looking for a possible third vehicle that might have been involved in the San Marcos crash that killed a 71-year-old woman, a deputy said today.

The collision on W. San Marcos Boulevard near W. Discovery Street was reported at 4:20 p.m. Saturday, sheriff's Dep. Michael Gildersleeve said.

The woman was driving a 2002 Infiniti I30 northbound on Discovery Street and making a left turn onto westbound San Marcos Boulevard when she was struck broadside on the right side of her car by a Ford F-250 pickup truck driven by a 31 year-old Fontana man, he said.

The collision did not appear to be alcohol or drug related and remained under investigation.
