UPDATE: Woman Killed in Crash on EB I-580

Vehicle overturned several times, driver ejected during solo accident near Stonecut Overpass, east of Livermore.

A woman was killed in a crash on eastbound Interstate 580 Wednesday afternoon near the Stonecut Overpass, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officer Steve Creel said a woman driving a green 1997 Honda Civic veered off the roadway onto the center median and went up an embankment.

On the way down, the car overturned several times before coming to rest, he said. The driver was ejected and landed in the roadway. She suffered major head trauma, according to reports heard on a police scanner.

Passing motorists stopped and tried to help her, but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:15 p.m., Creel said.

No other vehicles were involved and it appears the woman was alone in her car, he said.

The CHP issued a sig-alert at 12:20 p.m. and closed two lanes, causing traffic to back up to North Flynn Road. The sig-alert was lifted at 1:47 p.m.

I was in the middle of this traffic at 12:40. The article doesn't state if alcohol was involved, being the middle of the day, with no traffic, and in the fast lane, just veering to the median? I I saw the car, and gave me chills when I drove by. I hope she wasn't texting. My sypmathies to the family...
