The woman who was struck and killed by two cars while running on Highway 99 last Tuesday has been identified as 52-year-old Gianna Carter, according to the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
Carter was reportedly running on Highway 99 at 3:30 a.m. when she was struck by a car. California Highway Patrol reported the woman was “propelled” into the air. She landed in a different lane and was struck by a second driver who was unable to see her in the roadway, according to CHP reports.
Carter, a Sacramento resident, suffered fatal injuries as a result and was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident by Sacramento Fire Department officials.
The Coroner’s Office was tasked with identifying Carter, who was not carrying any form of identification.
