YOLO COUNTY, CA - California Highway Patrol investigators now have more information on the possible vehicle that struck and killed a woman running across Interstate 5 without stopping last Friday.
Officer Bryan Konvalin says investigators were looking for a brownish 1998 Buick Park Avenue, California license place number 6VIM118. It may have been recently sold to a salvage or tow company.
Konvalin said the victim, 17-year-old Claudia Marie Gonzalez of Woodland, was a passenger in a 2001 Chevrolet Impala traveling on northbound I-5. The driver of the Impala stopped along the freeway north of County Road 103 and Gonzalez ran across the northbound lanes where she was hit by a car. It was 12:34 a.m. She died from her injuries at the scene.
The CHP in Woodland would like to hear from anyone with information on the car of interest. The number to call is (530) 662-4685.
