A Pleasanton woman died Saturday after crashing her scooter into a tree on Foothill Road just south of the Castlewood Country Club, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The Alameda County coroner identified the woman as 45-year-old Donna St. Germain. The cause of death and a toxicology report were not yet available.
A CHP spokesman said while the crash is still under investigation, the woman was said to be driving a scooter northbound on Foothill and veered off the road and crashed into a tree around 10 a.m. Saturday near Verona Road.
She was transferred to ValleyCare Medical Center and she either died en route or at the hospital, CHP said.
Authorities said that drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the crash.
