CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A 53-year-old Chula Vista woman died four hours after her Jeep veered off state Route 125 in Chula Vista, struck a metal guardrail and overturned, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The woman's name was not immediately released.
She was driving a 1996 Jeep north on state Route 125, south of H Street, about 4:10 p.m. Friday when for some reason the vehicle veered to the right and struck a guardrail next to an overhead sign pole, a CHP report said. The Jeep overturned and its rooftop struck the metal support.
Firefighters extricated the woman from the wreckage and took her to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where she died about 8:20 p.m., according to the CHP.
