An 18-year-old woman died in a solo-vehicle crash off of state Highway 4 in western Contra Costa County on Monday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The woman, whose name hasn’t been released by the county coroner’s office, was a passenger in a silver 2014 Jeep Laredo that went off the road in a crash reported at 9:41 p.m. on eastbound Highway 4 just east of Cummings Skyway, CHP officials said.

The 28-year-old man driving the Jeep for some reason allowed it to veer to the right and crash into a tree off of the highway. The woman died and the driver suffered only minor injuries, according to the CHP.

Impairment is not considered a factor in the crash. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the CHP’s Contra Costa-area office at (925) 646-4980.
