A 55-year-old Albany woman died Friday after a collision on Interstate 680 in Danville.
At 11:02 a.m., the California Highway Patrol responded to a report of a collision on southbound I-680, south of Sycamore Valley Road, according to CHP officials.
The crash happened when the driver of a Toyota sedan lost control of the vehicle as she was driving in rainy weather, according to the CHP. The Toyota then spun across the highway's southbound lanes, crossing in front of a Ford truck, which was pulling a small trailer.
The front of the Ford collided with the side of the Toyota. Afterward, both vehicles then struck a retaining wall, CHP officials said.
The driver of the Toyota, an Albany resident, was taken to John Muir Medical Center, where she died hours later, according to CHP officials. Her name has not been released.
The driver of the Ford, a 38-year-old Concord man, was uninjured.
Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the collision, CHP officials said.
