Authorities are trying to figure out exactly why a pickup truck plunged off a road on the Central Coast, and crashed a tree, fatally injuring a woman.
The accident happened just before 12:30 a.m. yesterday, on Avila Beach Drive, near the Sycamore Springs Resort.
CHP investigators think the truck hit a tree, bounced into a telephone poll, and smashed into another tree.
The Los Osos woman was trapped in the vehicle, and had to be freed by firefighters.
She was flown to a Fresno hospital, where she died from her injuries.
The woman’s name hasn’t been released yet, pending notification of relatives.
