Last night at about 9:19pm, Contra Costa CHP was advised of a solo vehicle crash on Hwy-4 westbound, at the Alhambra Avenue off ramp. Upon emergency personnel and CHP arrival, it was determined that a solo 2007 black Toyota Camry had been driven off the roadway and collided into heavy brush and trees at the Alhambra Avenue off ramp. The adult female passenger was ejected from the Toyota and suffered major injuries and was transported to a local hospital. The driver, a 21-year-old female from San Pablo, was also ejected and suffered fatal injuries and tragically was pronounced deceased by medical personnel on scene. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroners’ Office will be handling the release of her identity.
