A woman was killed Sunday in a crash at a raceway in Desert Center, east of Indio.

The 21-year-old was a passenger in a car that hit a concrete barrier at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway.

The driver was airlifted to the hospital with major injuries. That person's condition was not immediately known.

Authorities say the crash happened during a recreational ride that was not part of a sanctioned race. The raceway opened in 2010.
