Woman killed in early morning Highway 20 wreck

Saturday, 01 February 2014 17:55 Elizabeth Larson

CLEARLAKE OAKS, Calif. – A single-vehicle crash early Saturday morning east of Clearlake Oaks claimed a woman's life.

The crash occurred at 5:50 a.m. on Highway 20 just east of Walker Ridge Road, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol's Clear Lake Area office.

The name of the woman and her age were not released pending notification of family, the CHP report said. Additionally, the report said her city of residence was unknown.

The CHP said the woman was driving a 2003 Ford Expedition eastbound on Highway 20 at an unknown speed when she allowed the vehicle's right-side tires to drift off the south roadway edge and onto the dirt shoulder.

The driver turned the wheel abruptly in an attempt to return the SUV to the eastbound lane, but the CHP said the abrupt turning movement caused the Ford to overturn in the roadway.

The SUV traveled in an easterly direction and came to rest on its right side against an uphill embankment that borders the south side of Highway 20, the CHP said.

The woman was trapped in the driver's seat and died at the scene, according to the report.

The CHP said the woman was wearing her seat belt. Alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash.
