Rancho Cordova woman dies of injuries from high-speed crash on Highway 99

A Rancho Cordova woman has died from injuries suffered in a crash on Highway 99 in South Sacramento on Saturday night.

The California Highway Patrol said that Gloria Woods, 41, was observed driving recklessly on southbound Highway 99 about 8 p.m. She apparently turned around and headed northbound, according to a CHP spokesman.

Once near the Turnbridge Pedestrian Crossing, between Florin Road and 47th Avenue, she lost control of her vehicle at a high rate of speed. Her car hit the center median and then careened across the northbound lanes, where the vehicle hit a guardrail, rolled over and then crashed through the soundwall.

She was taken to the hospital and was pronounced dead on Monday.
