Sacramento woman, 27, dies in early morning crash

A 27-year-old Sacramento woman was killed early Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash, the California Highway Patrol said.

The CHP said the woman, whose identity has not been released, was driving her 2006 Toyota Corolla northbound on Highway 99 around 1:10 a.m. and crashed into the concrete bridge retaining rail as she was attempting to maneuver onto the Highway 50 westbound ramp outside downtown Sacramento. Her vehicle crossed the roadway and crashed into the retaining rail on the opposite side.

Based on the driver’s injuries and other evidence, the CHP said it appears she may not have been wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.

The CHP said toxicology reports from the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office are pending.
