Brittany Schlumpberger, 29, of Santa Clarita, was killed when the car she was driving crashed earlier this week.

On Wednesday at 11:27 p.m., deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s Traffic Unit responded to a fatal single-vehicle traffic collision on Sand Canyon Road, south of Alamo Canyon Road.

The 29-year-old, who was not wearing her seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of death was not released by Coroner's officials pending an investigation.

Doherty, 20, of Canyon Country, is being accused of street racing with Thomas Vensko, 20, of Canyon Country, in that incident, and awaiting trial 

Schlumpburger's crash is currently under investigation by detectives assigned to the Santa Clarita Valley Station Traffic Office.
