Devil's Slide reopens after fatal crash

A 75-year-old woman was killed in a three-car crash on state Highway 1 at Devil's Slide this morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash, reported at about 7:45 a.m., closed the roadway until about 11:30 a.m., CHP Officer Kevin Kroncke said.

The driver of a Nissan Z coupe was traveling south on the narrow, twisted highway and was “going a bit too fast,” CHP Officer Shawn Chase said.

The Nissan crossed over the center line and crashed into another car head-on, killing the driver, Chase said.

The driver of the Nissan was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. A third car was also involved in the crash but that driver was not injured.
