A motorist killed when the pickup she was driving hit a tree late last week has been identified by Sacramento County Coroner deputies.
The coroner's website lists her as Lisa Marie Corpuz, 43, of Rio Linda.
Corpuz was declared dead at the scene of the accident at 7:18 p.m. Friday. California Highway Patrol spokeswoman Officer Lizz Dutton said the crash occurred shortly after 7 p.m. as Corpuz was driving a Dodge Ram 1500 pickup eastbound on Q Street, east of 16th Street.
She moved into the westbound lane to pass a vehicle. When Corpuz moved back into the eastbound lane, the truck went onto the shoulder and when it came back onto the roadway, she lost control of the vehicle.
Dutton said the truck crossed back over the westbound lane and struck the tree.
