The woman's name has not been released, but police say she was 22 years old.
The woman was rushed to hospital with a severe head injury after two cars collided with each other near the intersection of Canada Way and Gardner Court around 1:30 p.m. PT.
"It appears she was struck and thrown a considerable distance away from the crash site," Staff Sgt. Major John Buis said yesterday.
The collision sent one vehicle into a bus shelter while the other struck a pole. Debris from the collision was scattered almost half a block.
The other people in the crash had non-life threatening injuries, according to police.
The car that hit the pole was carrying three young people. The other car had a mother and child.
Both the cars had 'N' stickers for a new driver, and police said it's possible speed was a factor.
