One woman is dead and another woman was injured in a crash early Tuesday morning in Glendale.

Police say a pregnant woman was driving a minivan northwest on Grande Avenue when she hit a whole tire in the road and lost control. The vehicle crossed the median and struck a car traveling southeast, according to Glendale police.

The driver of the car, 52-year-old Karen Render, was killed in the crash.

The driver of the minivan, a 28-year-old woman who was 35-weeks pregnant, was taken to a hospital where she delivered her baby. The baby is a healthy girl. The woman is recovering with serious injuries from the crash.

Neither speed nor impairment are factors in this crash, police said.
