On Saturday July 13th at about 11:30pm, officers with the California Highway Patrol responded to the area of southbound Interstate 5 near Mathews Road. Authorities say that a 52 year old woman in a wheelchair was in the median of the highway before she was struck while trying to cross to the right shoulder.

Authorities say the woman was struck by a van traveling about 65 miles per hour in the middle lane. She suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

There were no 911 calls reporting the woman in the wheelchair before the crash. Investigators are looking at the possibility of the death as a suicide. Authorities do not believe the driver of the van was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The highway was closed down for about two and a half hours while officers investigated the collision.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Stockton CHP Office at (209) 938-4800.
