CHICO, Calif. - The woman who was killed in a crash on Highway 99 in Chico on Tuesday has been identified, according to the Butte County Coroner’s Office.
34-year-old Alison Hedrick of Rocklin, California was positively identified, according to officials. The cause of death is pending an autopsy.
Hedrick was driving northbound on Highway 99 just south of Cohasset Rd. when a white van was following her closely around 7:55 a.m. Tuesday.
The van then passed Hedrick and changed lanes in front of her vehicle with minimal clearance between the two vehicles, according to California Highway Patrol.
Hedrick lost control and left the roadway on the right side of Highway 99 when her vehicle hit a tree before it rolled over.
Hedrick was pronounced dead at the scene.
CHP said Wednesday morning it hasn’t found the van or identified the person driving the van. The crash is now considered a hit and run.
