Head-On Collision Leaves One Dead, Another Hospitalized


A woman is dead following a head-on crash on a Novato highway last night. The CHP says the woman was first spotted heading west in the eastbound lanes of Highway 37 near the Petaluma River Bridge at about 9:20 p.m. Minutes later, she struck another car head-on along the transition ramp to Highway 101. The impact killed the woman and hospitalized the other driver, who sustained minor injuries. The transition ramp was closed until nearly 1 o’clock this morning to allow the CHP to investigate.
