Posted on Friday, July 6, 2012 12:08am

A San Fernando Valley woman is facing DUI, and vehicular manslaughter charges following a fatal traffic accident in Ventura County.

The CHP says Glenda Navarro was driving on Piru Canyon Road, near Piru just after 5:30 Wednesday night when she failed to make a turn, and her car plunged more than 100 feet down an embankment.

The 18 year old woman was wearing a seat belt, and escaped from the crash with minor injuries.

Her passenger, a 24 year old North Hollywood man, wasn’t buckled in, and was thrown from the vehicle, and suffered fatal injuries.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His name hasn’t been released yet.
