Mata was driving north on Orange Blossom when her 1999 Honda veered into the southbound lanes of the road. Osterman was driving a Toyota Tacoma south on Orange Blossom and saw the Honda, the CHP said.
He moved his truck to the right shoulder but could not avoid the car. Osterman was wearing a seat belt; Mata was not, authorities said.
