A woman who died following a Monday morning collision on Interstate 5 in Sacramento has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office as Carol Marie Kennon, 65, of Elk Grove.
California Highway Patrol spokeswoman Officer Lizz Dutton said Kennon was a passenger in a red Corvette that was southbound in the far left lane of I-5 near Garden Highway about 9:45 a.m. A big rig truck and another passenger vehicle were traveling in lanes to the right of the Corvette, when, witnesses said, the Corvette began weaving and the driver lost control.
The Corvette traveled into the adjoining lane, where it was broadsided on the passenger side by the big rig, then clipped by the other passenger vehicle. All three vehicles went out of control and traveled off the freeway onto the Garden Highway offramp, Dutton said.
Kennon and the driver of the Corvette were taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where Kennon died Tuesday.
The driver of the big rig and occupants of the other vehicle were not injured.
