A woman who was killed early Thursday morning in a crash on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge has been identified as 24-year-old Hayward resident Marisol Morales, according to the San Mateo County coroner's office.
Morales was in the back seat of a 2000 Honda that sustained a flat tire in the westbound lanes of the bridge at about 3:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
The driver of the Honda turned on the vehicle's hazard lights and slowed down, but a Range Rover traveling in the same lane failed to stop for the disabled car and struck it from behind, the CHP said.
Morales was unconscious and not breathing when she was pulled from the heavily damaged car, according to the CHP.
Arriving officers and paramedics were unable to revive her, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Honda suffered minor facial cuts and the driver of the Range Rover was not injured. Drugs or alcohol were not believed to be a factor in the crash, and no one was arrested.
Anyone who might have witnessed the incident is asked to contact CHP Officer Aquino at (650) 369-6261.
