Bee reporters answer questions about area crime news, trends and other issues.

QUESTION: About two weeks ago a woman in a green SUV was driving crazy, first on Highway 50, then onto Folsom Boulevard and crashed into a guy in a BMW on Iron Point Road in Folsom. Were their IDs ever revealed?
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.
