A female driver was killed when she crashed into a utility pole just outside of Nipomo on Thursday.

It happened shortly after 8:30 a.m. on Bonita School Road, just south of Division St.

Authorities say a Guadalupe police officer spotted a car that had been reported stolen out of the San Luis Obispo area and initiated a pursuit. A few minutes later, the driver of the car lost control at a slight turn in the roadway and crashed into the pole.

The driver, identified only as a 28-year-old woman from Santa Maria, died at the scene.

The California Highway Patrol says no law enforcement officers crashed or were injured.

CHP is investigating the crash.
