A woman is dead after a drunk driver collided with her car in Rancho Cordova on Wednesday night, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said Thursday, May 24, 2018.

The woman who died in a drunken driving crash in Rancho Cordova on Wednesday night was identified as Daya Reddy, 55, the Sacramento County Coroner's Office said Thursday.

The crash happened sometime before 11:09 p.m. after the Rancho Cordova police responded to 911 calls reporting a "major vehicle collision" near International Drive and South White Rock Road, a Sacramento County Sheriff's Department news release said.

When officers arrived, they found two badly damaged cars and saw a man walking away from the crash. He was detained and identified as a 41-year-old Stockton resident, authorities said.

Officers also found Reddy, who was not breathing, inside one of the cars. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers determined alcohol intoxication contributed to the crash, and the man was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, police said.

Reddy lived in Rancho Cordova, the Sacramento County Coroner's Office said.
