A 28-year-old woman who was killed on the lower deck of the Bay Bridge early Wednesday morning when her car crashed into a recycling truck has been identified by the San Francisco medical examiner’s office as Clara Cisneroz.
The crash was reported at about 3:50 a.m. on the eastbound deck of the bridge near Treasure Island, California Highway Patrol Officer Herman Quon said.
Witnesses reported a Volvo speeding in one of the right lanes, Quon said. He said there were reports that the car was going more than 100 mph, but that those reports have not yet been substantiated.
The Volvo crashed into the rear of a 2007 Peterbilt truck, which was carrying recyclables and going about 40 mph. The Volvo became wedged underneath the truck and caught fire.
Cisneroz, a San Francisco resident who was driving the Volvo, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the truck, a Concord man, was uninjured.
