Placer County identifies crash victim as Sacramento woman

Published: Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013 - 11:38 am

The Placer County Coroner’s Office has officially confirmed that the body of a woman found earlier this month near Foresthill is that of Patricia Ann Macdonald, a Sacramento woman.

Macdonald, a fixture in Sacramento political circles, drove away from her Curtis Park home for what her family believes was an errand on Nov. 2. Her car was spotted Nov. 13 off an embankment in a remote area more than 80 miles from her home.

The car apparently veered off the embankment near Foresthill Road and Robinson Flat Road in the Tahoe National Forest. Macdonald’s body was found inside the car.

The California Highway Patrol said the crash appeared to be a single-car accident on a mountain road.
