Antioch woman dies in Highway 4 freeway shooting

The California Highway Patrol is investigating a freeway shooting that killed a female driver on eastbound State Highway 4 at the Willow Pass Road interchange west of the pass and north of Concord.

The accident was first reported at about 2:25 p.m. Saturday, when an eastbound silver Honda Accord veered first into the center divider and then across all eastbound lanes onto the Willow Pass Road exit offramp.

CHP investigators remained at the scene at 9 p.m. Saturday. By then, all four lanes of eastbound Highway 4 were open; anywhere from one to all four eastbound lanes had been closed at various points Saturday as the investigation unfolded. The eastbound Willow Pass Road off-ramp itself remained closed late Saturday night.

CHP identified the victim on Sunday as 25-year-old Destinee Hillery, of Antioch.

No further details were immediately available.
