Around 3:10 p.m. Tuesday, the California Highway Patrol said a woman was driving recklessly in the area in Jackson Road east of Murieta Parkway in a Nissan SUV. She then traveled off the roadway onto the shoulder and overturned her car, CHP said.
According to a report in the Sacramento Bee, the woman was ejected from the vehicle and suffered fatal injuries, according to the CHP. A child was also thrown from the vehicle, officials said, but was expected to survive.
The driver was later identified as Atheana Fotu, 25, by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
