Woodland Woman, 20, Reported Missing Found Dead In Crash Off I-80 In Natomas

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A woman who had been reported missing several days ago has been found dead in a crash off of Interstate 80 in Natomas.

The crash scene was found early Tuesday morning off of the westbound side of the freeway at the West El Camino Avenue onramp.

It's unclear exactly how long ago the crash happened, but authorities at the scene believe at least several days had passed before it was discovered.

Investigators believe the sedan had crashed off of the freeway, across from the West Camino Avenue onramp, going over the right shoulder. The sedan then struck a tree and landed in a brush-covered gulley.

Only one person, a 20-year-old woman from Woodland, was in the sedan. She was pronounced dead at the scene on Tuesday, CHP says.

The woman was later identified by the Sacramento County coroner as Damaris Gonzalez.

No witnesses of the original crash have yet to have come forward.

Woodland police say there was a woman who was reported missing to them on Monday. Police have also confirmed that she was the same woman that was found on Tuesday, but no other details have been released.
