Woman dies after car strikes tree off I-680

San Ramon driver crashes just north of Fremont Tuesday night

A 39-year-old San Ramon woman died hours after her vehicle struck a tree near southbound Interstate Highway 680 in unincorporated Alameda County just north of Fremont on Tuesday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Alameda County coroner's bureau has identified Kerri Dir as the woman who died in the crash, which was reported at about 6:05 p.m. on Highway 680 just north of Andrade Road, CHP Officer Ralph Caggiano said.

Witnesses said the vehicle Dir was in was going about 70 mph when it struck a tree near the right hand shoulder of the highway, according to Caggiano.

Dir was taken to Eden Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries some time after 10 p.m., Caggiano said.

There have been rocks, BBs, something being thrown/shot at cars along this stretch. I hope this wasn't a casualty from a window being shattered and that the CHPs will look at it closely.

Broken Glass,

I have never heard that about that stretch of 680 south. Are we talking about Andrade Road area?

It was on the news yesterday morning. The reporter said ten cars had been hit and reported broken glass over a period of several days. When I talked to CHPs about my car being hit by a rock (quite visible in the driver's side windshield), the officer indicated they thought there were kids in the area (I was on Pleasanton Sunol Rd. which runs along and very close to 680) possibly with sling shots. My glass did not break, but it was very alarming. I figured stopping to look for someone would only make me a target. I could be linking A to Z with nothing in the middle, but it does make me wonder.

Man you would think these kids know better and their parents might keep them on a shorter leash.

Michael, nice thought. Have you checked out this town lately? The parents not only let their kids run without leashes at all but they are the ones who provide the booze and drugs. Did you read about the wonderful parents in Ruby Hill who not only provided the goods for several hundred of their kid's closest friends -- they charged an admission fee to the party? Yeah, the P-town parents really care what their kids ard doing. Not.
