A Richmond woman who died in a one-car highway crash Saturday has been identified by the Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office.
Alexandria Alvarez, 26, was thrown from the 2014 Nissan Maxima she drove on eastbound Highway 4 after losing control of the car around 3 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said. The car went down an embankment near the McEwen Road exit, the CHP said.
Investigators found Alvarez outside the car and pronounced her dead at the scene. The CHP has not determined why she lost control of the Nissan.
An autopsy will determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
