Los Banos woman killed in crash east of Gilroy

SANTA CLARA COUNTY – A 24-year-old Los Banos woman was killed in a collision early Monday east of Gilroy, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The solo-vehicle crash was reported just before 4 a.m. on State Route 152 west of Bloomfield Avenue.

An initial investigation revealed a 23-year-old Los Banos woman was driving a 2014 BMW 328i eastbound at 65 mph when she made an “unsafe turning movement,” which caused her to lose control of the car, the CHP said in a statement. The car then traveled onto the south shoulder of the highway and hit a tree.

A passenger – the 24-year-old Los Banos woman – was taken to Regional Medical Center, where she died of her injuries. The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office will release her identity once it is confirmed and her next of kin is identified.

No other injuries were reported.

At this time, the CHP said it does not believe alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
