LIVERMORE, Calif. (BCN) - A woman has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and felony drunk driving for a crash near Livermore in unincorporated Alameda County late Wednesday night that claimed the life of a 16-year-old girl, authorities said Monday.
However, it's expected that 26-year-old Lauren Davis of Livermore will be released from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin later today because the Alameda County District Attorney's Office wants more information before considering filing charges against her for the fatal crash.
The crash occurred on westbound Stanley Boulevard just west of Isabel Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday, California Highway Patrol Officer Tyler Hahn said.
Alameda County sheriff's jail records list Davis' occupation as being a driver for UPS. She's currently being held without bail.
Authorities allege that Davis was the driver of a blue Kia that was carrying five people, veered off the roadway, flipped several times and ended up north of Stanley Boulevard.
Hahn said 16-year-old Violet Agamau of Pleasanton died after she was partially ejected from the car.
One other person was ejected from the car and suffered major injuries, according to Hahn.
The additional investigation that must be conducted into the fatal collision involves getting a toxicology report on Davis, getting witness statements and reviewing footage from surveillance cameras in the area, Hahn said.
