FOLSOM, CA - The Sacramento County coroner released the name of the woman who died in what police said was an alcohol and speed-related crash last Friday night as Kimberly Ann Bryant, 45, of Folsom.
Bryant died when the Pontiac Grand Prix she was a passenger in rolled and hit a tree on Folsom Boulevard.
Folsom police officers responding to the crash found the driver, James Bekwith, 52, sitting in the center divide.
Bryant was still trapped inside of the mangled car, police said. First responders pronounced her dead at the scene. Bekwith was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries, police said.
Investigators also noted that incorrect use of a seatbelt may have played a role in Bryant's death, said Sgt. Chris Emery.
Police were awaiting toxicology tests on the driver to determine whether to file charges in the case.
