Slick roads near Truckee Thursday led to a collision that resulted in the fatality of a woman visiting the area from Beijing China. Truckee CHP responded to the report of a solo vehicle crash involving a green Lexus on Interstate 80 west of Donner Pass Road in Nevada County. The woman driving the vehicle was a 40 year old woman from Beijing China named Fang Ling. Ling had spun out on the slippery roads and slid into an embankment on the side of the highway. Officer Andradi from the Truckee CHP Office says Lang had exited her vehicle when another Lexus was coming up I-80.
Andradi says the Chinese consulate has been in communication with the CHP.
The Cause of the collision is still under investigation. Drugs and alcohol have been ruled out.
