One woman is dead after a fiery car crash on the Broadway offramp from Highway 99 early Monday morning.
The female driver veered off the road while northbound Highway 99 at a high rate of speed at around 2:55 a.m., California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Michael Bradley said.
Her 2008 Toyota RAV 4 hit a tree, causing it to flip several times and come to rest on its wheels halfway down the offramp before catching fire. The ramp remained closed until about 5 a.m.
The Sacramento County Coroner's Office has yet to release the woman's identity or determine whether alcohol or other drugs played a role in the crash. Bradley said she died at the scene from blunt force trauma and burns.
No other vehicles were believed to be involved in the crash. The woman was wearing a seat belt.
