Submitted by: Steve and Beverly, Folsom
ANSWER: The crash occurred about 2:52 p.m. Aug. 14, when a woman reportedly speeding on Folsom Boulevard in a sport utility vehicle approached slow-moving traffic at Iron Point Road.
After passing several vehicles on the right side of the roadway, she tried to change lanes, moving to the left at an unsafe speed and sideswiping a BMW, witnesses told police. She reportedly had been driving erratically on Highway 50 before exiting onto Folsom Boulevard.
Drivers of both vehicles were transported to the hospital, and the driver of the SUV died the following day. The Sacramento County Coroner's Office identified her as Kristi Hills, 59, of Sacramento.
Police did not release the name of the man driving the BMW, but Sgt. Jason Browning said he has been released from the hospital.
Browning said police have closed their investigation of the collision.
