A 70-year-old Emeryville woman has died following a collision with an SUV late last month in Berkeley. Christa Carlson died at her Emeryville home on June 13th according to information by the Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau.
Carlson was struck near the South Berkeley intersection of Sacramento & Fairview streets at approximately 9 p.m. back on May 29th. After the collision, Carlson was taken to Highland Hospital Trauma Center. She sustained serious head injuries and was listed as in critical but stable condition.
The driver of the SUV, identified as a 39-year-old Berkeley man accompanied by two children, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators.
Berkeleyside.com provided additional details that the vehicle was a GMC Yukon and that the driver of the vehicle in fact called in the collision to police.
The cause of Carlson’s death is still under investigation by the Coroner and it is unconfirmed if the Berkeley crash contributed to her death.
