A second victim has been pronounced dead from her injuries in a crash near Livermore in unincorporated Alameda County last week, county coroner officials said Thursday.
Livermore resident Alexis Garcia, 25, suffered major injuries when a blue Kia that was carrying five people crashed on westbound Stanley Boulevard just west of Isabel Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. on Nov. 22, the night before Thanksgiving, and died on Wednesday, coroner's officials said.
Violet Campbell, 16, of Pleasanton, died at the scene after she was partially ejected from the car, according to California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Tyler Hahn.
Authorities allege that Lauren Davis, 26, of Livermore, was driving the Kia when it veered off the roadway, flipped several times and ended up north of Stanley Boulevard.
Davis was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and felony drunk driving for the crash but was released from custody on Monday because the Alameda County District Attorney's Office wants the CHP to continue investigating the crash it before considering filing charges against her.
When Davis was in custody, Alameda County sheriff's jail records listed her occupation as being a driver for UPS.
Hahn said the additional investigation that must be conducted into the fatal crash involves getting a toxicology report on Davis, getting witness statements and reviewing footage from surveillance cameras in the area.
A fundraising account for Garcia's family had raised $13,060 of its $50,000 goal as of 2 p.m. Thursday. A fundraising account for Campbell's family had raised $10,066 of its $15,000 goal by the same time.
