Yeager was driving north on I-5 at about 5 a.m. when her car swerved off the road over an embankment, flipped over and crashed into a large tree nearly 60 feet from the road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The accident happened just south of the 43rd Avenue exit

Officials found Yeager trapped inside the car, and she was pronounced dead at the scene by the Sacramento fire department.
